Let’s quickly discuss what you are going to learn in the post on computer networks. Following are the points which you learn in this tutorial
- What is Data Communication
- Data Communication Model with block Diagram
- Components of Data communication Model with examples
Let’s Get Started, Happy learning!
What is Data Communication
Data communication is the exchange of data between two devices via some form of transmission medium. For data communication to occur, the communication devices must be part of the communication system. The data communication system is made up of hardware and software.
Hardware is physical equipment or components and software include programs. Thus the basic aim of data communication and networking is to be able to exchange data such as text, audio, and video from one point to another.
Data Communication Model
The data communication model is consists of three systems such as source, transmission and destination system. It has five components as follows:
- Transmission System
The following shows the basic block diagram of data communication Model in computer networks
Components of Data Communication Model
The following are the communication of data communication Model
The device generates the data to be transmitted. For example, telephones and Personal Computers
The data generated by the source is not directly transmitted. The transmitter is used to convert data into electromagnetic signals. For example, Modem ( modulator and demodulator). The modem takes a digital bit from a personal computer and transforms it into an analog signal.
A Transmission system can be a single transmission line or complex network connectivity between source and destination system.
The receiver accepts the signal from the transmission system and converts it into a form that is handled by the destination device. For example, A Modem accepts an analog signal and convert it into a digital bitstream.
A Destination takes the incoming data from the receiver.
I hope now you will have an idea that what is data communication model and what its components are.
