Factors that can impact the successful transmission of a signal from its source to destination
Question: In wireless communications, what are the factors that can impact the successful transmission of a signal from its source to destination?
In wireless communications, instead of moving data over physical wires, it is transmitted across the air as RF energy. There are a large number of factors that can influence what happens in this channel. Here are some simple examples:
■ Attenuation due to range ■ Attenuation due to passing through objects such as product enclosures or walls ■ Multi-path effects from reflections off walls, floors, or other objects ■ Interference from other signals All of these things impact the successful transmission of the signal from its source to its destination, and have it properly received.
