From the early 1970's it was realised that the current analogue telephone system, which had been established internationally over several decades, was now required to carry digital signals.
A short, but technical guide on how Digital to Analogue Conversion electronics works in simple circuits.
Irrespective of the format of the signal to be transmitted throughout the network there must be an infrastructure provided to transport the information. There are currently three broad categories that provide this function.
How Analogue to Digital Conversion works to convert an analogue signal into a digital format.
There are many different methods (topologies) for interconnecting two or more digital computers together in a network. This guide outlines the advantages and disadvantages of the most common network topologies.
The OSI 7 Layer Model is a solution to the chaotic early development of LANs, MANs, and WANs from the early 1980's which saw tremendous increases in the numbers and sizes of networks.
