Noise, Data Rate and Frequency Bandwidth
Bandwidth refers to the data rate that is supported by the network connection or the interfaces that connect to the network. It represents both volume and time. Calculate how much data you can transfer in a time period, given certain Enter value and select a unit of bandwidth measurement to convert the value to the. Relationship between Data Rate and Bandwidth. Consider a square wave. • Data rate R = 2 x f. • Double the bandwidth ⇒ double the data rate. (other things.
Nyquist formula: relating data rate and bandwidth
Use the calendar interface to request time on sb2, sb3 or sb7. Set up testbed At your reserved time, open a terminal and log in to the console of the testbed that you have reserved.
This is usually your regular GENI username with a geni- prefix, e. If you are using WITest, log in to witestlab. Then, you must load a disk image onto the testbed nodes.

From the testbed console, run: If you are using WITest note that there is no space around the comma: This process can take minutes. Don't interrupt it in middle - you'll just have to start again, and it will only take longer. If it's been successful, then once the process finishes running completely you should see output similar to: Then, turn on your nodes with the following command: Prepare your receiver Open a new terminal window, and run the following command to tunnel the ShinySDR ports between your laptop and the receiver node: If you are using WITest note: Then, in that terminal window which should now be logged in to your testbed consolelog on to the receiver node: If you are using WITest: Configure your Shiny window as follows: Click on the "hamburger" icon in the top left corner to open the menu, if it isn't already open.
Un-select the "Frequency DB" display to hide that display if it is showing.
Select the "Radio Config" display if it isn't showing. Note the "Gain" slider in the "Radio Config" section. You may have to increase the gain later if you aren't able to see the transmission in the ShinySDR window.
Check the "Use DC Cancellation" box, but don't worry if it doesn't stay checked.
This setting is not strictly required. Use the "Options" section to adjust the dynamic range and reference level of the visualization so that you can see the noise floor and there is about dB of range. Click on the "hamburger" again to close the menu. Prepare your transmitter In a second terminal window, log in to the node that will act as transmitter. First, log in to the testbed console: Shannon-Hartley's equation provides the "theoretical" maximum capacity for a signal given its frequency bandwidth and SNR.
Typically, digital communication systems do not reach this theoretical capacity due to many factors such as modulation scheme and the overall noise environment. SNR is the ratio of the received power in watts, to thermal noise. Noise other than thermal, such as impulse, interference from other sources, etc. So it's worth taking a closer look at what thermal noise is. Thermal noise is caused by the agitation of electrons in a material. As temperature increases, so does the agitation or activity of the electrons, thus resulting in greater thermal noise.
This noise impacts our ability to distinguish signal power from noise power. Since electrons exist in all materials, the noise produced cannot be eliminated. Thermal noise spans across all frequencies and is usually called the "noise floor".
We use thermal noise when we determine SNR, not only because of its prevalence but also because we can measure it. By looking at the units of the equation, we see that N is in watts. SNR can be re-written as:
