A typical ISDN line actually contains two digital phone lines, each capable of transmitting 64 kilobits
- 64,000 bits of data - every second.
Palm's independent field tests show that Treo 700w smartphone can deliver speeds of between 400-600 kilobits
The 117F has the capability of a SINCGARS radio, a UHF PRC-113 HaveQuick, and a DAMA radio with satellite communications that go up to 56 kilobits
in two different modes," observes Curran.
BroadbandAccess, with typical user speeds of 300-500 kilobits
per second (kbps), is ideal for downloading files and business-critical information residing behind corporate firewalls and for accessing e-mail, intranets and the Internet.
From there we step down the signal to a variable bit rate that can send 500 to 600 kilobits
per second to broadband channels, transcoding from MPEG to broadband in real time.
