Transmission of information over a communications medium. The information may be digital in the form of data packets, or analog, in which case it is translated to digital format upon reaching a destination (typically with a modem). Telecommunications generally refers to data transmission over copper wire, fiber optics, wireless (microwave, cellular), and LAN technologies (Ethernet).
