Telecommunication

telecommunicationscommunicationstelecom
A transmission medium is something that can mediate the propagation of signals for the purposes of telecommunication.
It is transmitted through a transmission media, such as over physical media, for example, over electrical cable, or via electromagnetic radiation through space such as radio or light.

Sound

audiosound wavesound waves
For example, data can modulate sound and a transmission medium for sounds may be air, but solids and liquids may also act as the transmission medium.
In physics, sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid.

Refraction

refractedrefractiverefract
While material substance is not required for electromagnetic waves to propagate, such waves are usually affected by the transmission media they pass through, for instance by absorption or by reflection or refraction at the interfaces between media.
In physics, refraction is the change in direction of a wave passing from one medium to another or from a gradual change in the medium.

Wave propagation

propagationpropagatespropagate
A transmission medium is something that can mediate the propagation of signals for the purposes of telecommunication.
Other wave types cannot propagate through a vacuum and need a transmission medium to exist.

Optical medium

Electromagnetic radiation can be transmitted through an optical medium, such as optical fiber, or through twisted pair wires, coaxial cable, or dielectric-slab waveguides.
It is a form of transmission medium.

Aether theories

Historically, science incorporated various aether theories to explain the transmission medium.
In physics, aether theories (also known as ether theories) propose the existence of a medium, a space-filling substance or field, thought to be necessary as a transmission medium for the propagation of electromagnetic or gravitational forces.

Communication channel

Many different types of transmission media are used as communications channel.
A communication channel refers either to a physical transmission medium such as a wire, or to a logical connection over a multiplexed medium such as a radio channel in telecommunications and computer networking.

Attenuation

attenuateattenuatedattenuating
Fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss; in addition, fibers are immune to electromagnetic interference, a problem from which metal wires suffer excessively.
In physics, attenuation or, in some contexts, extinction is the gradual loss of flux intensity through a medium.

Luminiferous aether

Luminiferous aether or ether ("luminiferous", meaning "light-bearing") was the postulated medium for the propagation of light.

Transmission (telecommunications)

In telecommunications, transmission (abbreviations: TX, Xmit) is the process of sending and propagating an analogue or digital information signal over a physical point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmission medium, either wired, optical fiber or wireless.

Atmosphere of Earth

For example, data can modulate sound and a transmission medium for sounds may be air, but solids and liquids may also act as the transmission medium. It may also pass through any physical material that is transparent to the specific wavelength, such as water, air, glass, or concrete.
