The major difference between C-band and Ku-band satellite transmission involves the allocation of the frequencies. C-band is assigned to terrestrial microwave radio communications while Ku-band is allocated solely to satellite communication networks.Know More
Because of its broader allocation, C-band frequencies can overlap with other communications. It is, however, considered more robust because it is not as affected by rain and for that reason is the frequency of choice in Africa in regions prone to torrential rain.
C-band frequencies are preferable where there are requirements for large bandwidth. Ku-band uses smaller antennas and less expensive equipment and so is the choice of smaller networks, broadcasting and two-way internet connections.Learn more about Internet & Networking
Dual-band routers are wireless routers that use two different radio frequencies, 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, to handle multiple devices. A dual-band router provides coverage compatible with several communication protocols by transmitting on both bands at the same time.Full Answer >
While it is possible to view live satellite images of hemispheres of the earth, it is not possible to view live satellite images of your own home or of any other specific location on earth, for that matter. Live satellite images of locations that specific are not made public because of the many security and safety hazards they would provoke. It is possible, however, to view older static satellite images of your home by visiting Google Earth at www.earth.google.com.Full Answer >
The band Pentagram sings the song "Mental Zero." It is the third track on their album "Bloodywood."Full Answer >
The types of transmission media include solids, liquids, gases and plasma; what all transmission media have in common is that they have the ability to propagate energy waves. Sound waves, for example, can pass through solids, liquids and air, and the effects of these different transmission media cause the sound to come through with various alterations.Full Answer >
