The basis upon which ISDN exists. Digital technology breaks information down into strings of ones and zeros enabling fast transmission of data.
Method of storing, processing and transmitting information through the use of electronic or optical pulses that represent binary digits or bits (0 and 1).
Technology used in telecommunications where information is processed by first converting it to a stream of ones and zeros. Digital technology permits extremely complicated systems to be designed and manufactured at reasonable cost through the use of ASICs and computer circuitry while meeting very high performance standards.
A technique for signal transmission and recording where, in contrast to analogue technology, each value of a video and audio signal is transformed into binary information with only two levels, 1 and 0. This permits transmission, recording, copying and storage without any loss of quality.
allows compression of communication signals for faster, easier transmission of information
this enables information of all types to be transmitted in digital form over networks.
A technology that encodes information using combinations of 0 and 1 instead of a continuous electrical signal (analog).
Digital technology converts source material into a numeric sequence that will be decoded back into its original form by another device, such as a computer. Nowadays, just about any form of communication or informationâ€”video signals, music, voice calls, and so forthâ€”can be digitally transmitted. The advent of digital technology has allowed companies to offer their customers a group of services in one package that previously had to come from different sources; this phenomenon is referred to as "convergence."
