2 Introduction A communication network is a collection of network elements integrated and managed to support the transfer of information. Data Transmission: links and switches. Optical fiber Copper coaxial cable Unshielded twisted wire pair Microwave or radio wireless links. Optical fiber and copper links are usually point-to-point links, whereas radio links are usually broadcast links. Guided media: twisted pair (unshielded and shielded) coaxial cable optical fiber Unguided media: radio waves microwaves (high frequency radio waves)
4 Coaxial cable with length l. It is composed of a number of intermediate segments with properties: R, L, G and C of a unit length of cable R 1 : radius of inner wire R 2 : radius of braided outer conductor 2·10 -7 : derived from properties of dielectric material
5 Telegraph Equations x 0: (1) (2) Equations (1) and (2) are called the telegraph equations.
6 They determine e( x, t ) and i( x, t ) from the initial and the boundary conditions. (If we set R and L to zero in these equations (we assume no series impedance), the simplified equations are telephonic equations). (3) (4) Solution of equations (3,4) by differentiating of equation (3) with respect to x, and combine with equation (4):
7 Define the value as A 1 and A 2 are independent of x, and can be calculated from the boundary conditions at x = 0 and x = l. The value of is derived from the properties of the coaxial cable and the frequency : (7) (6) ( ) is the attenuation coefficient. ( ) is the phase shift coefficient. (5)
8 Characteristic Impedance of Coaxial Cable For the Fourier-transformed current insert (6) into equation (3) from equation (7) above:
9 Reflection and Termination reflected voltage / incident voltage; To express this signal in the time domain, we must divide (6) into its magnitude and phase components. We express =F(, ):
10 We can find the relationship between the magnitudes of A 1 and A 2 if we know that Z rec is pure resistance (a real value of impedance) and we know the value of Z:
11 Z = 50, R tot = 50, and = 2 V Z rec = 0, Z rec = 50 Z rec =

20 Appendix Error analysis The goal of the lab experiment is to determination the transmission line bandwidth of a coaxial cable. We will use the experimental data to construct an amplitude Bode plot, and find the frequency for which the signal is attenuated by less than 3 dB. This is the bandwidth for which half or more of the input signal power is delivered to the output. the absolute error in 20·log 10 | H( j ) | due to the errors U out and U in :
