Importance of Modulation in Communication System

importance-modulation-communication
There is a huge importance of modulation in the communication system. It is defined as the modification process of the message signals in the communication system. In the modulation process, the message signal of very low frequencies is impressed. And, only the carrier signal of high frequency is passed through the transmission process.

It is one of the important techniques in which the addition of a signal is done to an optical signal carrier or electronic wave carrier. It is very important as it uses the properties of a periodic waveform the most. It is used in communication just to pass the signal which bears information from one source to another destination.

Here, a transmitter is used which is normally present to modify the message signal. In this process, the message signal is modified in a suitable form and it is transmitted over various communication channels. This whole process of modification of message and carrier signals is termed as modulation.

The need for Modulation Process in Communication

A communication system must make a message and carrier signal ready for the transmission of communication channels. Another reason for its use is because of the multiplexing properties.

During modulation, the size of the antenna matters the most. The size of the antenna depends upon the wavelength of the signal. Therefore, the practicality of an antenna is achieved with the help of modulation. Also, to remove the interference in the communication channel the modulation is preferred.

The modulation process is also needed to reduce the quantity of noise present in the communication band.

What Is Demodulation?

The opposite of modulation is defined as demodulation. It is the process where the impressed message signal is recovered. Here, the conversion of a modulating carrier signal is done into the required signal which is equivalent to the original signal. In simple words, we can define demodulation techniques like the process of extracting the original information holding signal from a modulated signal wave.

Types of Modulation

There are various types of modulation. They are defined as amplitude modulation, frequency modulation, and phase modulation. In amplitude modulation, the amplitude of the high-frequency carrier signal is changed. The amplitude of the carrier signal contains all the needed information. It depends upon the intensity of the signal.

Similarly, in frequency modulation, the frequency of the carrier signal is changed and it does not depend on the amplitude or phase. The frequency of the carrier signal contains all the needed information. It uses the information signal for varying the carrier frequency within a desired range. And, in phase modulation, the phase of the carrier signal is changed.

Vestigial side-band modulation (VSB-AM)

One of the examples of modulation is vestigial sideband modulation. It is the type of Amplitude modulation technique and also called VSB-AM.

Here, the VSB-AM stands for Vestigial Side Band Modulation- Amplitude Modulation where the encoding of the information is carried out by creating wide variations in the amplitude of a Signal. In this type of modulation process, the very low-frequency parts play an important role at the receiving end. Here, in vestigial sideband modulation along with the desired sideband, another part of the sideband is also transmitted.

Importance of External Environmental Analysis in Strategic Management

External Environmental Analysis (EEA) is the analysis of the external environment which helps in analyzing the trends and activities of the industry in the marketplace. The processes of EEA are:
1. Scanning
2. Monitoring
3. Forecasting
4. Accessing
Micro and Macro factors in the Business Micro factors look at the specificity and macro factors look at the overall economy/business. Micro factors can be influenced because it is an assessment of the specific firm, and Macro factors are less influenced because it is external factors which are difficult to predict and understand. Therefore, micro factors are the factors of the specific firm such as the functional department, policies, procedures, laws, etc which can be influenced and changed when necessary. But, macro factors are external factors/segments such as demographics, political, legal, socio-cultural, technology, environment, legal issues that can be difficult to predict and influence.

Top 5 Advantages of Digital Communication System

Good Reasons To Choose Digital Communication System 1. The digital communication system has high noise immunity. High noise immunity means the digital communication system is more immune to noise as compared to the analog communication system. In an analog communication system, the system has less noise immunity compared to a digital system. The noise produced in an analog communication system is very high compared to the digital communication system. Therefore, the digital communication system is preferred for better noise immunity.

2. It has many advantages in storing and processing various data and information. The data and information stored or retrieved in a digital communication system can be achieved in any format like audio or video, etc. But in an analog communication system, the information processed is hard to obtain in any desirable format. It can't achieve in the format demanded by the user. Therefore, the digital communication system is preferred for a better output…

Study of Evolution And Classification of Computers

Evolution of Computer Technology The computers were evolved in various time periods and the various factors or fundamental technology were responsible for the evolution of computers as per human needs. How are computers classified? The classifications of computers are based on fundamental technology like speed, memory, storage capacity, size, etc. These factors (fundamental technology) were the reason behind the evolution of computers.

Each new generation is characterized by various important factors like a smaller size, greater speed, larger memory, huge data storage capacity and more.
