Computer network technology continues to speed up

Who remembers Commodore 64? Released to the public in the early 1980s, Commodore 64 was the most popular computer on the market for several years. In fact, it is still a single best-selling computer system to this day, with an estimated 17 million units for sale.

Commodore 64 displays revolutionary graphics and sounds for time machines, and for reasons it is very popular for playing games. It also has a built-in data recorder known for its slow processing time and a little storage space. While the floppy disk attachment was finally released, not much to increase storage capacity.

Commodore 64 network capabilities and other single user computer units during that time minimum. Dial-up modem is immediately available, which allows users to connect with public bulletin boards to access early online games. It also allows users to “chat” and send messages, basically set the stage for what is known today as the Internet.

Computer network

The development of computer network technology and the initial version of the internet began in the late 1950s, and was being used by military communities and science in the next decade.

During the early days, the machine with the same ability as desktop computers is currently very large so it requires several floors to operate. The compact size of the current computer can be credited to the development and evolution of the microprocessor, which allows communication to occur at lightning speed through a comfortable small device.

The network becomes “Norma”

In the 21st century, computer networks have become part of our daily lives. The internet has been widely used for around 20 years, allowing us to send instant messages to each other, send large documents, share photos and have the equivalent of a world-class library at our fingertips. These things are all routine in our high-tech world.

What’s behind the network?

Simply put, computer networks consist of several interconnected computers. Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network located on one local, such as buildings, offices or campuses. The wide area network (WAN) is a computer network spread throughout the large geographical area. The internet can be considered as the biggest WAN on earth!

Connection and installing the actual cables in computer networks are often ignored. This is not a glamorous computing side by any stretch, but it is a “life line” network. When the network is in a period of growth, transfer information is very slow due to the fact that only one information can be transferred at a time. It can also be associated with cables’ limitations, which is basically a telephone wire at that time.

With the advent of “Packet Transfer” technology, several pieces of information can be activated alternating simultaneously. This revolutionizes the speed where computer networks operate. Along with computational technology coming upgrades in the actual network connection; cabling.

We now have a Cat5e bulk cable, which provides amazing number of bandwidth for information transfer compared to the installation of original network cables. And for work that requires a faster speed, CAT6 bulk cables provide more bandwidth. Fiber cables are used in the largest and fastest network.
