Definitions for **"Kilobit"**

1,024 bits for technical purposes, such as data storage; 1,000 for general purposes.

One thousand bits. Abbreviation-Kb

a thousand bits, a megabit a million bits per second

a unit of information storage, abbreviated kbit or sometimes kb

a unit of information storage, commonly abbreviated "kb" or "kb"

A measure of storage capacity equal to 1,024 bits.

A thousand bytes or, more accurately, 1,024 bits.

A common unit of data measurement equal to 1024 bits. A Kilobit is usually referred to in the context of bit rate per unit of time, such as Kilobits per second (Kbps).

A measure, representing 1,000 bits, generally used to express the speed per second of telecommunications services and equipment. A bit is the smallest unit used to express digital information.

A data unit equal to 1,000 bits.

A kilobit is simply 1,000 bits. Abbreviations of kilobit (Kb) are often confused with the abbreviation for kilobyte (KB). (A byte is a group of eight bits.)

One thousand bits of information. The information carrying capacity (i.e., bandwidth) of a circuit may be measured in "kilobits per second."

1. n. For processor storage, real and virtual storage, and channel volume, 210 or 1024 bits. 2. n. For disk storage capacity and communications volume, 1000 bits

1000 bits or 125 bytes.

Approximately one thousand bits: 1 bit x 2 10 (that is, 1,024 bits) .

Approximately one thousand bits, or exactly 1 bit x 2 10 (1,024) bits.

In the context of memory, this is 2 to the power of 10 bits (1024). However, in the context of network link s, it often refers to only one thousands bits (1000). There are 8 bits in a byte. Note that link speeds are usually written in megabit s or kilobits per second, while throughput is usually measured in kilobyte s per second. While the factor of 8 difference is fairly straight forward, the 2.4% difference between the base 10 and base 2 definitions of "kilobit" can result in some confusion. See also kilobyte.

Approximately one thousand bits, or exactly 1 bit x 210 (1,024) bits. 240 kilobits per second means 240,000 bits of information are being transmitted over a network per second (240 Kbps). Recall that 8 bits comprise a byte.

1024 bits (2^10 bits).

1024 bit s, or 2 to the 10th power, when referring to processor storage, real and virtual storage, and channel volume. However, when referring to disk storage capacity it is 1000 bits. Abbreviated as Kb.

One thousand bits, usually represented as bits per second (kbps).

1000 bits; a data transmission speed measure, not to be confused with KB.

A kilobit is a unit of information storage equal to 1,000 bits.

1,024 bits for technical purposes, transfer rates are measured in kilobits per second, abbreviated as Kbps, and count a kilo as 1,000 bits.

1 Kilobit = 1.000 Bits.

This refers to 1,000 bits of binary inforation, 1s or 0s; represented in electric circuits by a connected circuit or a disconnected circuit.

One thousand bits. The kilobit is a convenient unit of data for talking about transmission speeds over computer networks. A 56-kilobit line, for example, can transmit 56,000 bits per second. A T1 line, by comparison, can transmit 1,544,000 bits per second. Kilobit is abbreviated Kb (i.e., 56Kb). See also bit, megabit, T1. WWWebfx Home Page

Approximately one thousand bits (1024 bits, to be exact). Data transfer rates are measured in kilobits per second, abbreviated as Kbps.

One thousand bits of data. For example, 240 kilobits per second means 240,000 bits of information are being transmitted per second over a network (240 Kbps).

One thousand bits in the binary numeration system, or exactly 1,024 bits.

A thousand [or 1024] bits.

1024 bits; a measure of capacity.

210 bits or 1024 bits.

(Kb) 1024, or about 1000, bits.

One thousand bits. Bit is the contraction of binary digit. A bit is the electrical equivalent of a value 0 or 1 that represents the basic unit of computer information.

Kilobit is abbreviated as Kb or Kbit. It represents 1024 bits (binary digits). ... more
