Wired communication: Generally refers to the physical cabling in a network.

"Over the wire" means transmitting the signals onto the physical medium. Increasingly, the wire is no longer metal, but glass. Wired Communication refers to the transmission of data over a wire-based communication technology. Examples include telephone networks, cable television or internet access, and fiber-optic communication. Wired Communication Introduction Although the trend moves towards an increased use of wireless communication systems, wired systems are still as relevant as they have been. Some examples of wired systems are cable TV, ADSL (broadband) and fixed telephony (PSTN - Public Switched Telephone Network). Our Research A wired communication system is based on several modules, enabling everything from protocol management to cable access. Our department focuses on design and implementation of complete systems, as well as developing functional modules for integration with other systems. We work both with standard and non-standard systems. Our focus areas in wired communications are directed towards data transfer on powerline cables and on twisted pair cables. Powerline communication projects are normally associated with development of modems for data transfer to offshore subsea installations. Our research in the field of twisted pair cables is mainly within modelling and simulation of various xDSL technologies. Common wired media are twisted pair cable, coaxial cable, shielded twisted pair and optical fiber cable.
