Nt1310 Unit 7 Assignment 1

...Unit 7. Assignment 1. Refraction, Reflection and Optics Refraction: The most common real life example used when discussing refraction is a straw in water. When a straw is placed in a glass of water and viewed from the side, it appears to be broken or bent. This is due to the difference in the refractive indices of air and water. Since water is denser than air, the straw appears to bend as the light it reflects is slowed by the density of the water. This phenomenon also makes submerged objects, such as fish look closer to the surface than they actually are. Another common example is a rainbow, where sunlight is refracted by raindrops. Sunlight consists of a mixture of different wavelengths, or colors, of light, with blue, for example, having a shorter wavelength than red. When this light passes through raindrops, the shorter wavelengths are bent more than the longer ones, splitting the light into its different colors. Reflection: Pretty much everything you see could be considered reflection. The fact we can see is due to light reflecting off of objects and into our eyes. A good example, I guess, is the moon. When it glows at night that is just light from the sun reflecting onto the Moon's surface, and bouncing back, giving it that glow. Degradation of signal strength in fiber-optic transmission. The main factors that affect this is number of connectors, splicing, Quality of Fiber / connectors, also not using an Attenuator according to the distance, or using dirty......

You want to have a plan first and some things that you would want to include in the plan would be where your telecommunications rooms are located, What is the distance from your leased line to your core router, and what type of cable are you going to be using for your backbone and horizontal lines. The first thing shouldn’t be cost when you are designing a network. You want to make sure you have things in place like what type of fire protection your network will have. You want to make sure your racks in your telecommunication rooms are grounded properly. You also want to think of the safety and how your network will function with different mediums of cable. This things are important because your network to meet the needs of the company. Without these things your network will not be very safe. You want it to be useful but you don’t want to lose everything in a telecommunications room because you failed to plan ahead for accidents that can happen. Well once you have your plan intact and it has been approved you need to think about how you are going to get this cable in the building. What types of tools are you going to need?

...Unit 7 Lab 1 New Building Safety Plan In my safety plan the first things that I’m going to cover are the PPE for working on a construction site where a new building is being placed. First you’re going to need a hard hat so that when anything falls from above, it keeps your brains where they belong like in your head. Second steel toed shoes or boots, preferably boot for a little extra ankle support. But the steel toes to protect your feet from anything being dropped or lowered in case your foot gets in the way. Safety goggles, pretty self-explanatory on this one, just need to keep things out of your eyes! Long pants (blue jeans) protect your legs from different object that could hurt your skin but with pants on you might just get a bruise. Next on the list gloves are always a good idea to wear so that you don’t rip your hands up while you’re working! A water cooler is a must in this situation because it’s going to be hot out and hydration is key to survival! There will also be no running on the job site. Hurry to quickly can cause more accidents than any amount of production you’re getting for running that thirty foot. Only work on the parts of the job that you know, if someone ask for help go ahead and give them a hand but if you’re a plumber then just let the electrician handle his own job. Back to PPE for a sec a back brace would be a good idea to wear also. Once you have a back injury it will be a problem for the rest of your life in most cases. In case of an......

Cell phones can be seen as both voice and data, depending on what type of cell you have. * Landline Phones – A simple phone that has to be plug into a jack, which is mostly used in business and in a few homes now days. The signal travels through the wires to a switch than to its destination. A landline phone sends a voice signal across the network. * SMS / Text Messaging - text messaging has become a very popular mode of communication. Short Message Service (SMS) is a communication protocol allowing the interchange of short text messages between mobile devices. SMS messages are presently transmitted over signaling channels of a voice network, such as over SS7 channels. * Fax Machines – Fax machines sends data through networks which is a lot faster than using regular mail. A fax machine takes a copy of a document than sends it through a transmission line to another fax which than prints out an exact copy of that same document. This transmission is sent through a data network. * Pagers - Pagers were the most popular wireless communications devices for several reasons: They are very easy to use, their batteries last several weeks, and they are light......

...Nt1310 9/17/2014 Unit 1 Assignment 1 Cell phones – Cell phones use data networks to communicate over radio frequencies. The frequencies that they use are also shared with television, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Landline phones – Landline phones use voice networks only because they do not need as much speed as anything else. Normal house phones use approximately 10 MB/s which is all that voice networks handle. SMS/Text messaging – Text messaging uses data networks because they can also be sending media like pictures and video. The other reason that I believe that text messaging uses data networking is because it is faster. Fax machines – Fax machines use voice because they only transmit exactly what is on the paper. It is not being transformed into little packets and sent over the internet to another place; it is just sent from one place to another through the phone line. Pagers – Pagers use the same as cell phones and that is data networks because it is wireless, and does not have to be plugged into anything. Pagers are not that common due to the cell phone industry growing swiftly. VOIP – VOIP as it says in the name of it uses a data network. It uses IP for talking so that the communication is more secure and not many people can tap in as easily as people can over regular phones. Skype/Facetime – Skype and facetime both use data networks to communicate because you are sharing video with somebody else. You are also receiving video, and video cannot be shared over a......

...Crosstalk- unwanted transfer of signals between communication channels. Waveguides- a metal tube or other device confining and conveying microwaves. FTTH- Fiber to the home (FTTH) is the delivery of a communications signal over optical fiber from the operator's switching equipment all the way to a home or business, thereby replacing existing copper infrastructure such as telephone wires and coaxial cable. Simplex- Simplex refers to one-way communications where one party is the transmitter and the other is the receiver. An example of simplex communications is a simple radio, which you can receive data from stations but can't transmit data. Half-Duplex- Half-duplex data transmission means that data can be transmitted in both directions on a signal carrier, but not at the same time. Full-Duplex- Full-duplex communication between two components means that both can transmit and receive information between each other simultaneously. Telephones are full-duplex systems so both parties on the phone can talk and listen at the same time. Photodiode- a semiconductor diode that, when exposed to light, generates a potential difference or changes its electrical resistance. Amplitude Modulation- the modulation of a wave by varying its amplitude, used chiefly as a means of radio broadcasting, in which an audio signal is combined with a carrier wave.

...Short Answer 1-7 on page 111 How do modules help you to reuse code in a program? Because you are writing a code to perform a specific task Name and describe the two parts that a module definition has in most languages. Heather and body When a module is executing, what happens when the end of the module is reached? When the end is reached, the computers go back to the part of the program that called the module and the program resume execution. What is a local variable? What statements are able to access a local variable? The Module can only call on a local variable. Statement made inside the same module can call on a local variable In most languages, where does a local variable’s scope begin and end? Star from where the variables is defined and runs to the end on the block in which it is defined. What is the difference between passing an argument by value and passing it by reference? Passing an argument by value means that only a copy of the argument’s value is passed into the parameter variable. Passing an argument by reference means that the argument is passed into a special type of parameter known as a reference variable. Why do global variables make a program difficult to debug? Global variables make a program difficult to debug because any statement in a program file can change the value of a global variable. If you find that the wrong value is being stored in a global variable, you have to track down every statement that......

...Unit 7.Exercise 1. Fiber Optics--Definitions Cross Talk- Fiber-optic cabling is immune to crosstalk because optical fiber does not conduct electricity and uses light signals in a glass fiber, rather than electrical signals along a metallic conductor, to transmit data. So it cannot produce a magnetic field and thus is immune to EMI. Waveguides- A structure that guides electro-magnetic waves along their length. The core fiber in an optical fiber cable is an optical waveguide FTTH- Fiber to the Home Simplex- A link that can carry a signal in only one direction Half-Duplex- A system in which signals may be sent in two directions, but not at the same time. In a half-duplex system, one end of the link must finish transmitting before the other end may begin. Full Duplex- A system in which signals may be transmitted in two directions at the same time Photodiode- A component that converts light energy into electrical energy. The photo-diode is used as the receiving end of a fiber optic leak Amplitude Modulation- A method of signal transmission in which the amplitude of the carrier is varied in accordance with the signal. Analog Transmission- effected by noise and attenuation more than digital transmission Digital Transmission- the FCC changed the signal from analog to digital on 12 Jun 2009 Sample Rate- When an analog signal is digitized, any information between the samples is lost, so instead of a smooth transition over time, the digital information jumps from one......
