A lil’ reviews about the Broadbands & Area Network

Posted: 05/04/2011 in Generals

1. Broadband is a general-word method used for connecting us to the digital area network and hence, to the internet..

2. Area Network divided into several stages..the smallest one is called as Local Area Network (LAN)..next stage, Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)..& the biggest one is Wide Area Network (WAN)..it is like LAN’s for Malaysia..MAN’s for Malaysia+SEA..WAN’s for the whole world..

3. coming back to the Broadband..so Broadband got many kinds..some related examples of broadband are ADSL2+, WiFi, WiMAX, FTTH, MetroE..

4. ADSL2+ (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) broadband is actually the Telekom is used for the Streamyx..this broadband is applying the usage of copper cable (underground cabelling)..


5. Wifi (Wireless Fidelity) broadband is as u known is with the Hot-Spots stuffs..using wireless communication to do all the connection works


6. WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) broadband is same as Wifi..using wireless connectivity..but built on different IEEE standards compared to the Wifi..


7. FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) Broadband is actually TM is using for the hottest internet services in town right now; UNIFY..so FTTH is using the Fibre Optic (wirings are done undergrounded-ly)cables in establishing the network..


8. MetroE (Metropolitan Ethernet) is a kind of Super-Speed LAN/MAN/WAN that implemented for international/private companies via their own proxy from their own internal usage..that’s why u heard of people downloading muvies at their office with the rate of 4Mbps etc…


9. Mobile Broadbands?..hmm not sure..maybe another kind of broadband..mybe BoS (Broadband over Satellite)..or mybe WiMAX?..not sure..hehe..

10. & please refer the “Maxis broadband” & “Celcom Broadband” & “Digi Broadband” correctly..it should be “Maxis/Celcom/Digi Mobile Broadband”

11. Mybe some of these are incorrect as i just refreshing what i can remember from Applied Telecommunication lecture class..if got so, please correct me alright? 🙂
