What is signal degradation in data communications?
Asked in Technology, Atoms and Atomic Structure
Distinguish between a signal element and a data element?
Signal Element Versus Data Element: Let us distinguish between a data element and a signal element. In data communications, our goal is to send data elements. A data element is the smallest entity that can represent a piece of information: This is the bit. In digital data communications, a signal element carries data elements. A signal element is the shortest unit (time wise) of a digital signal. In other words, data elements are what we need to send; signal elements are what we can send. Data elements are being carried; signal elements are the carriers.

You will have signal degradation unless you use the amplifier.?
What is the application of pulse amplitude modulation?
What advantages does digital transmission have over analog transmission?
digital signal is less susceptible to signal degradation due to the nature of it's transmission signal which is either on or off and therefore less errors occur as analog is prone to signal degradation and loss that is why digital tv is crisp and clear and analog is somewhat blurry in comparison, also with higher bandwidth achievable by digital transmission more data is able to be transmitted.
Does a digital signal travel farther than an analog signal?
You need to make a distinction between analog and digital signals, and analog and digital data. Digital data can be sent on an analog signal by using a modem. Digital data sent on a digital signal is done over a wire using voltage pulses at two or more levels. Digital signals can't travel very far without amplifiers, but analog signals can cover huge distances, such as with satellite communications and even communications with deep space probes.
