Activity 2
How does the data in an online game get sent from your computer or gaming system to the computer gaming system of all the people you are playing with?
The data from an online game is sent to other players via the internet. When you play the game you connect to the internet via the router in your home. That data is transmitted to your local internet service provider. The data is then sent to the games host server and then transmitted to the internet provider of the other players that are logged into the game server and forwarded to the internet provider of the other players and then on to the player’s system.

...RBOCS-The Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOC) are the result of United States v. AT&T, the U.S. Department of Justice antitrust suit against the former American Telephone & Telegraph Company (later known as AT&T Corp.). On January 8, 1982, AT&T Corp. settled the suit and agreed to divest its local exchange service operating companies. Effective January 1, 1984, AT&T Corp.'s local operations were split into seven independent Regional Bell Operating Companies known as "Baby Bells". RBOCs were originally known as Regional Holding Companies (RHCs). Currently, three companies have the RBOCs as predecessors. They are AT&T Inc., Verizon, and Century Link. Some other companies are holding on smaller segments of the companies. ILEC- An incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) is a local telephone company in the United States that was in existence at the time of the breakup of AT&T into the Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs), also known as the "Baby Bells."[1] The ILEC is the former Bell System or Independent Telephone Company responsible for providing local telephone exchange services in a specified geographic area. GTE was the second largest ILEC after the Bells, but it has since been absorbed into Verizon, a RBOC. ILECs compete with competitive local exchange carriers (CLEC). When referring to the technical communities ILEC is often used just to mean a telephone provider. In Canada, the term ILEC refers to the original telephone companies such...

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......

...Physical Networking 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......

...Unit 1 Exercise 1 Local Exchange When you send an email from New York to Japan, that email,is sent from your home to the local exchange point over the access network. Once it is in the local exchange it is then sent to aggregating points in different cities and counties over the regional network. Then it is aggregated and transported over the long-haul network so that it reaches the launching point at the country shoreline where it is then sent over the ocean network to Japan. Once there, the email is sent back over the long-haul or regional network to the local exchange and then on to the individual receiving the email. This occurs using mostly fiber optics so the speeds at which all this takes is at the speed of light which is approximately 127,000 miler per second. understand how to interface with the local exchange you must first understand the different networks that comprise it. The first network, being the access network. The access network is the network that connects the individual user or business with the telecommunications system. This is made up of a series of fiber-optic and copper cabling and passive and active equipment that connects you to the local exchange. The central office at the local exchange contains the switching equipment to direct your telephone, data , video, etc. to where it needs to go. The access network is very important to the local exchange since it’s the part that reaches the end user, who is you, and connects them. The metro network,......

...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......

Forward Biased LED: A bias voltage that is applied to a pn-junction in the direction that causes a large current flow; used in some semiconductor diode circuits. 2. Incoherent Light: Light in which the electric and magnetic fields of photons are completely random in orientation. Incoherent light is typically emitted from light bulbs and LEDs. 3. Laser: Acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. The laser produces a coherent source of light with a narrow beam and a narrow spectral bandwidth (about 2cm). Lasers in fiber optics are usually solid-state semiconductor types. Lasers are used to provide the high-powered, tightly controlled light wave lengths necessary for high-speed, long-distance optical fiber transmissions. 4. Output Pattern: A setting that selects the output pattern for comparison outputs. This enables outputs for changes in levels rather than just upper/lower limit comparisons to set value. It can be set according to the control applications. Note: The settings must be as follows for correct zone outputs. 5. Output Power: The useful signal or power delivered by a circuit or device. 6.

Open licenses, no activation methods, frequent upgrades and patches. 4. What is the Free Software Foundation/GNU? What is Linux? Which parts of the Linux operating system did each provide? Who else has helped build and refine this operating system? The Free Software Foundation (www.fsf.org) is the principal organizational sponsor of the GNU Project. GNU developed many of the tools, including the C compiler, that are part of the Linux operating system. Linux is the name of the operating system kernel developed by Linus Torvalds, which has since been expanded and improved by thousands of people on the Internet. Torvalds’s kernel and GNU’s tools work together as the Linux operating system. Chapter 2, Ex. 1: 1. Briefly, what does the process of installing an operating system such as Fedora/RHEL involve? An installation, sometimes referred to as a clean install, writes all fresh data to a disk. The installation program overwrites all system programs and data as well as the kernel. You can preserve some user data during an installation depending on where it is located and how you format/partition the hard disk. Alternatively, you can perform a clean install on an existing system without overwriting data by setting up a dual-boot system. Chapter 3, Ex. 1, 4, 8: 1. What is a live system? What advantages does it have over an installed......

...Unit 9 Assignment 1 3/2/2015 LEDs has a much lower power output than lasers and their bigger the light output pattern makes it harder to couple into fiber limiting the LED to be used with multimode fibers, LEDs have less bandwidth than a laser and are limited to operate up to about 250 MHz or around 200 Mbs. But of the way the LEDs are fabricated they are cheaper to make than lasers, they contain no hazardous material and last up to 10,000 hours. LEDs have a very small broad output which causes them to suffer chromatic dispersion in fiber. The bulbs create less heat during use which can lead to lower cooling costs and its green friendly, decreases amount of energy used by 5%. Laser Transmitter Laser transmitter have a much smaller and tighter light input and can be easily coupled to single mode fibers, this make the laser transmitter perfect for longer distances and high speed links. Laser has a high bandwidth capability some are used up to 10 GHz or 10 Gbps this makes Laser transmitters more expensive. Laser Transmitters have a narrow spectral output that suffers very little chromatic dispersion. Laser Transmitters avoid interference because the frequencies between the lasers have narrow beams that are less likely to have significant side lobes that could introduce interference. They could be applied when two or more buildings want to be connected to the same network or just to connect to or more networks. The transmitter takes an electron input and converts it to......
