Effectiveness of a data communications system





Five components of a Data Communications System



  1. Message : The message is the information (data) to be communicated.


  2. Sender : The sender is the device that sends the data message.


  3. Receiver : The receiver is the device that receives the message.


  4. Transmission media : The transmission medium is the physical path by which a message travels from sender to receiver. Some examples of transmission media include twisted-pair wire, coaxial cable, fiber-optic cable, and radio waves.


  5. Protocol : A protocol is a set of rules that govern data communications. It represents an agreement between the communicating devices.
