In telecommunications, transmission is the process of sending, propagating and receiving an analogue or digital information signal over a physical point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmission medium, either wired or wireless.


Tranmission technologies and schemes typically refer to physical layer protocol duties such as modulation, demodulation, line coding, equalization, error control, bit synchronization and multiplexing, but the term may also involve higher-layer protocol duties, for example digitalization of an analog message signal, and source coding (compression).

Signal transmission[]

Transmission of a digital message, or of a digitized analog signal, is known as data transmission or digital communication.

Type of transmission[]

One of the type of transmission is, the sending of a signal with limited duration, for example a block or packet of data, or a phone call.
