Suppose that an analog communications channel has an intended capacity of 10 Mbps. The bandwidth is 4 MHz. According to Shannon's law, what is the maximum signal-to-noise ratio (in dB) that can be tolerated on this channel?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 12:57 am ad1c9bdddf
As per Shannon's law, the theoretical maximum rate at which data can be transmitted error-free over a bandwidth-limited channel in the presence of Gaussian noise is expressed as:
C = ...
Stepwise calculations shown, along with the formula used. Final answer also given in decibels.
