- Use short answers to explain the difference between:
o Synchronous and asynchronous
Synchronous: In telecommunications, the signaling in a network or between networks has signals that are occurring at the same clock rate. In program to program communications, synchronous requires that each end of the exchange answer in turn without starting a new communication.
Asynchronous: In telecommunications, the signaling within a network or between networks, the signal is transmitted a different clock speeds than other signals. In computer programs, the process operates separately of other processes.

o Analog and digital
Analog: a signal in which a carrier's frequency is modified by amplifying the strength of the signal/frequency. Analog transmits data (voice) as electronic signals. An example of an analog signal is the traditional telephones.
Digital: technology that is able to generate, store, and process data in tenures of two states, positive and non-positive. Positive states express or represent the number 1 and non-positive is represented by ...
