RBOCS stands for Regional Bell Operating Companies. These seven companies were established after an antitrust suit against AT&T. It split the company into seven regional companies that handle local exchange service. They are also known as “Baby Bells.” These companies handled almost all of the telephone services across the country. ILEC stands for Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier. This is a local telephone company that existed when AT&T was broken up into the RBOCS. It was an independent telephone company that provided telephone services in a specific geographical area. ILECs compete with CLECs. CLEC is an acronym for competitive local exchange carriers. They compete with ILECs by providing private line and special access services. They are not affiliated with the RBOCs. Some states especially encourage these companies because they are competitive and the opposite of the monopolies. MSOs are multiple system operators. These are defined as an operator of multiple cable television systems.This usually refers to large cable companies that provide service for multiple communities, such as Time Warner Cable, ComCast or Cox Cable and similar companies. These MSOs provide television service, broadband internet services, and telephone services. ISP stands for internet service provider.

...settled the suit and agreed to divest its local exchange service operating companies. Effective January 1, 1984, AT&T Corp.'s local operations were split into seven independent Regional Bell Operating Companies known as "Baby Bells". RBOCs were originally known as Regional Holding Companies (RHCs). Currently, three companies have the RBOCs as predecessors. They are AT&T Inc., Verizon, and Century Link. Some other companies are holding on smaller segments of the companies. ILEC- An incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) is a local telephone company in the United States that was in existence at the time of the breakup of AT&T into the Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs), also known as the "Baby Bells."[1] The ILEC is the former Bell System or Independent Telephone Company responsible for providing local telephone exchange services in a specified geographic area. GTE was the second largest ILEC after the Bells, but it has since been absorbed into Verizon, a RBOC. ILECs compete with competitive local exchange carriers (CLEC). When referring to the technical communities ILEC is often used just to mean a telephone provider. In Canada, the term ILEC refers to the original telephone companies such as TELUS (BC Tel and AGT), SaskTel, Manitoba Telephone Systems (MTS All stream), Bell Canada Enterprises and Aliant.

...data sent over a TCP connection. SMS/Text Messaging – The SMS (Short Message Service) can be used in a variety of ways. Some examples include: cellular phones, GPRS systems, and web texting. SMS does not use any kind of voice technology and therefore is sent over data networks. Fax Machines – Fax machines contain analog modems. This type of modem technology uses the voice network technology. When the receiving end handles a fax connection it listens for a digital connection that has been converted from an analog signal using a voice network. Pagers – Pagers also known as beepers were primarily used over data networks by sending numerical short messages similar to the SMS service. Since the introduction of data pagers, voice pagers have also emerged. These types of pagers use a voice network to transmit a short audio message that the user can then retrieve. VOIP Phones – VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a technology that can transmit audio messages over an internet protocol. The name voice would probably throw most people off, but since VOIP is transferred over an internet protocol it thereby uses data networks. Skype/FaceTime – Both Skype and FaceTime utilizes video telephony and VOIP technologies. Originally video telephony was developed on image phones. These phones used still images that were sent over the POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) which used a voice telephony service. Now most video telephony devices and software transfer this information over...

...Unit 7. Assignment 1. Refraction, Reflection and Optics Refraction: The most common real life example used when discussing refraction is a straw in water. When a straw is placed in a glass of water and viewed from the side, it appears to be broken or bent. This is due to the difference in the refractive indices of air and water. Since water is denser than air, the straw appears to bend as the light it reflects is slowed by the density of the water. This phenomenon also makes submerged objects, such as fish look closer to the surface than they actually are. Another common example is a rainbow, where sunlight is refracted by raindrops. Sunlight consists of a mixture of different wavelengths, or colors, of light, with blue, for example, having a shorter wavelength than red. When this light passes through raindrops, the shorter wavelengths are bent more than the longer ones, splitting the light into its different colors. Reflection: Pretty much everything you see could be considered reflection. The fact we can see is due to light reflecting off of objects and into our eyes. A good example, I guess, is the moon. When it glows at night that is just light from the sun reflecting onto the Moon's surface, and bouncing back, giving it that glow. Degradation of signal strength in fiber-optic transmission. The main factors that affect this is number of connectors, splicing, Quality of Fiber / connectors, also not using an Attenuator according to the distance, or using dirty......

...Physical Networking Unit 1 Assignment 1 Cell phones – Cell phones use data networks to communicate over radio frequencies. The frequencies that they use are also shared with television, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Landline phones – Landline phones use voice networks only because they do not need as much speed as anything else. Normal house phones use approximately 10 MB/s which is all that voice networks handle. SMS/Text messaging – Text messaging uses data networks because they can also be sending media like pictures and video. The other reason that I believe that text messaging uses data networking is because it is faster. Fax machines – Fax machines use voice because they only transmit exactly what is on the paper. It is not being transformed into little packets and sent over the internet to another place; it is just sent from one place to another through the phone line. Pagers – Pagers use the same as cell phones and that is data networks because it is wireless, and does not have to be plugged into anything. Pagers are not that common due to the cell phone industry growing swiftly. VOIP – VOIP as it says in the name of it uses a data network. It uses IP for talking so that the communication is more secure and not many people can tap in as easily as people can over regular phones. Skype/Facetime – Skype and facetime both use data networks to communicate because you are sharing video with somebody else. You are also receiving video, and video cannot be shared over a......

The seven original regional Bell operating companies were Ameritech, Bell Atlantic, BellSouth, NYNEX, Pacific Bell, Southwestern Bell, and US WEST. Each of these companies owned at least two Bell operating companies (Bell operating company). The BOCs were given the right to provide local phone service while AT&T was allowed to retain its long-distance service. The RBOCs and their constituent BOCs are part of the class of local exchange carriers (LECs). (Rhine, Robert S.

AT&T monopolized the telecommunication industry until the United States took them to court for antitrust and won. AT&T was broken up into eleven smaller companies, call Baby Bells. One of the companies that derived from this law suit was the Regional Bell Operating Company or RBOC. RBOC was a term that described one of the US telephone companies that provided telephone, telegraph, and long distance to the consumers. RBOC is part of a local exchange carrier allowed to compete for business. RBOC services internet service which in turn dealt with digital data. The merging companies provided different types of service based on the Telecommunication Act of 1996. ILEC or incumbent local exchange carrier is a telephone company that provided local telephone communications before the ruling to break up the Ma Bell Company.

But of the way the LEDs are fabricated they are cheaper to make than lasers, they contain no hazardous material and last up to 10,000 hours. LEDs have a very small broad output which causes them to suffer chromatic dispersion in fiber. The bulbs create less heat during use which can lead to lower cooling costs and its green friendly, decreases amount of energy used by 5%. Laser Transmitter Laser transmitter have a much smaller and tighter light input and can be easily coupled to single mode fibers, this make the laser transmitter perfect for longer distances and high speed links. Laser has a high bandwidth capability some are used up to 10 GHz or 10 Gbps this makes Laser transmitters more expensive. Laser Transmitters have a narrow spectral output that suffers very little chromatic dispersion. Laser Transmitters avoid interference because the frequencies between the lasers have narrow beams that are less likely to have significant side lobes that could introduce interference. They could be applied when two or more buildings want to be connected to the same network or just to connect to or more networks. The transmitter takes an electron input and converts it to......

The seven original regional Bell companies were Ameritech, Bell Atlantic, BellSouth, NYNEX, Pacific Bell, Southwestern Bell, and US WEST. The reason why this was so important was because these companies are what provided local telephone service while AT&T provided the long distance phone service. These are what made up the Local Exchanges or the LEC’s. ILEC or incumbent local exchange carrier was a telephone provider that provided local service prior to the telecommunications act of 1996. These play a major role because these carriers are what own the local loops/exchange and facilities in that area. CLEC’s are the exact same thing except they are the competitor to the ILEC’s but provided their own networking and switches for local service. MSO or Multi system Operator – is owner of multiple cable and satellite television systems. This ties into what an ISP is.
