What are the types of transmission media?


Signals are transmitted over transmission media broadly classified into two categories.

Guided or Bounded Media

  • Bounded media are made up of external conductor bounded by jacket material.

  • Provides a conduit from one device to another that include twisted-pair, coaxial cable and fiber-optic cable.

  • Signal traveling along any of these media is directed and contained by the physical limits of the medium.

  • Twisted-pair and coaxial cable are metallic and transport signals in the form of electrical current.

  • Optical fiber is a glass or plastic cable that accepts and transports light signals.

Unguided Media

  • Refers to wireless media that transports electromagnetic waves without a physical conductor.

  • Done through radio communication, satellite communication, and cellular telephony.

  • Wireless transmission can be used in both LAN and WAN.

  • Some of them are point-to-point antennas while others are omni-directional antennas.

  • Even satellites act as giant antennas receiving and transmitting signals generated from the earth.

  • Wi-Fi, wi-max, 3g are example wireless networks used for internet communication.
