Bandwidth Transfer Definition

Webhosting Bandwidth is a measure of frequency range, measured in hertz, of a function of a frequency variable. Webhosting Bandwidth is a central concept in many fields, including information theory, radio communications, signal processing, and spectroscopy. Webhosting Bandwidth also refers to data rates when communicating over certain media or devices.

Bandwidth Transfer Explanation

Webhosting Bandwidth is a key concept in many applications. In radio communications, for example, Webhosting Bandwidth is the range of frequencies occupied by a modulated carrier wave, whereas in optics it is the width of an individual spectral line or the entire spectral range

There is no single universal precise definition of Webhosting Bandwidth, as it is vaguely understood to be a measure of how wide a function is in the frequency domain.

For different applications there are different precise definitions. For example, one definition of Webhosting Bandwidth could be the range of frequencies beyond which the frequency function is zero. This would correspond to the mathematical notion of the support of a function (i.e., the total "length" of values for which the function is nonzero). Another definition might not be so strict and ignore the frequencies where the frequency function is small. Small could mean less than 3 dB below (i.e., less than half of) the maximum value, or it could mean below a certain absolute value. As with any definition of the width of a function, there are many definitions available, which are suitable for different applications.

According to the Shannon-Hartley theorem, the data rate of reliable communication is directly proportional to the frequency range of the signal used for the communication. In this context, the word Webhosting Bandwidth can refer to either the data rate or the frequency range of the communication system (or both).

Bandwidth Transfer Analog Systems

For analog signals, which can be mathematically viewed as a function of time, Webhosting Bandwidth is the width, measured in hertz, of a frequency range in which the signal's Fourier transform is nonzero. This definition can be relaxed where the Webhosting Bandwidth would cover the range of frequencies where the signal's Fourier transform has a power above a certain amplitude threshold, say 3 dB within the maximum value, in the frequency domain. Webhosting Bandwidth of a signal is a measure of how rapidly it fluctuates with respect to time. Hence, the greater the Webhosting Bandwidth, the faster the variation in the signal may be. The word Webhosting Bandwidth applies to signals as described above, but it could also apply to systems. In the latter case, to say that a system has a certain Webhosting Bandwidth is a short-hand for saying that the transfer function of the system has a certain Webhosting Bandwidth.

The fact that real baseband systems have both negative and positive frequencies can lead to confusion about Webhosting Bandwidth, since they are sometimes referred to only by the positive half, and one will occasionally see expressions such as B = 2W, where B is the total Webhosting Bandwidth, and W is the positive Webhosting Bandwidth. For instance, this signal would require a lowpass filter with cutoff frequency of at least W to stay intact.

The Webhosting Bandwidth of an electronic filter is the part of the filter's frequency response that lies within 3 dB of the response at the center frequency of its peak.

In photonics, the term Webhosting Bandwidth occurs in a variety of meanings:

  • the Webhosting Bandwidth of the output of some light source, e.g., an ASE source or a laser; the Webhosting Bandwidth of ultrashort optical pulses can be particularly large
  • the width of the frequency range that can be transmitted by some element, e.g. an optical fiber
  • the gain Webhosting Bandwidth of an optical amplifier
  • the width of the range of some other phenomenon (e.g., a reflection, the phase matching of a nonlinear process, or some resonance)
  • the maximum modulation frequency (or range of modulation frequencies) of an optical modulator
  • the range of frequencies in which some measurement apparatus (e.g., a powermeter) can operate
  • the data rate (e.g., in Gbit/s) achieved in an optical communication system
Digital Systems

In a digital communication system, Webhosting Bandwidth has a dual meaning. In the technical sense, it is slang for baud, the rate at which symbols may be transmitted through the system. It is also used in the colloquial sense to describe channel capacity, the rate at which bits may be transmitted through the system (see Shannon Limit). Hence, a 66 MHz digital data bus with 32 separate data lines may properly be said to have a Webhosting Bandwidth of 66 MHz and a capacity of 2.1 Gbit/s but it would not be surprising to hear such a bus described as having a "Webhosting Bandwidth of 2.1 Gbit/s." Similar confusion exists for analog modems, where each symbol carries multiple bits of information so that a modem may transmit 56 kbit/s of information over a phone line with a Webhosting Bandwidth of only 12 kHz.

In discrete time systems and digital signal processing, Webhosting Bandwidth is related to sampling rate according to the Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem.

Webhosting Bandwidth is also used in the sense of commodity, referring to something limited or something costing money. Thus, communication costs Webhosting Bandwidth, and improper use of someone else's Webhosting Bandwidth may be called Webhosting Bandwidth theft.

Bitrate is the number of bits that are conveyed or processed per unit of time. In digital multimedia, bitrate is the number of bits used per unit of time to represent a continuous medium such as audio or video.
