The two fundamentally different types of data are: Digital and analog.
Which of the following is not a key advantage of digital trasmission. It permits only low transmission rates.
_____ is the basic physical layout of the circuit. Circuit configuration.
A ____ circuit is another name for a multipoint configuration. Shared circuit
Which is not true about point to point circuits? Point to point circuits reduce the amount of cable required and use the circuit more efficiently than multipoint circuits.
The ability to transmit in both directions but only in one direction at a time is an example of ___ transmission half duplex

___ Transmission is prone to interference from smoke, heavy rain and fog requires line of sight. Infrared
Microwave transmission: Is a type of high frequency radio communication, requires a clear line-of-sight path, is typically used for long distance data transmission, , and does not require the laying of any cable
__ refers to the time it takes for a signal to travel from sender to recipient, (highly exaggerated with sattelite transmissions) Propagation delay
