what is it measured in
kilobits per second (thousands of bits per second)
megabits per second (millions of bits per second)
gigabits per second (billions of bits per second)
also called bit rate
always in bit per second
speed is what a single node will experience.
like a speed of download.
if you are the only person on the network you will get the max amount of speed but if there is two people it will get shared out between you and them.
Workstations/nodes are connected to a switch which is connected to a server/ multiple servers
All of the workstations are connected to a switch or a hub
You still have to authenticate to be able to access your files and data
Every user can access their files and data through any node connected to the switch/hub
When you authenticate the computer will work out what you will have access to
a server provides a service to connected nodes
bandwidth is the max amount of data that can be sent/transferred across whole the network.
at a certain time.
all of the users of the network
contention ratio .
contention ratio is how many people are using the bandwidth.
it is a measure of how well data can be transmitted through a network
How long a packet of data takes to get from a node to its destination
measured in milliseconds
The lower the latency the data will get to its destination faster
Whoever has the lowest latency the faster the instruction will be executed
How often errors occur or data gets corrupted when it travels between points
People moving around can affect the transition if they walk through the line of sight
It is rare for it to happen on a wired network
Wi-Fi is allot more prone to error rate than cables
