digital signal X

Contributor(s): Martin Gee, Patrick Tierce, and Michael Whyte

Digital signal X is a term for the series of standard digital transmission rates or levels based on DS0, a transmission rate of 64 kilobits per second (Kbps), the bandwidth normally used for one telephone voice channel. Both the North American T-carrier system and the European E-carrier system of transmission operate using the DS series as a base multiple. The digital signal is what is carried inside the carrier system.

DS0 is the base for the digital signal X series. DS1, used as the signal in the T1 carrier, is 24 DS0 (64 Kbps) signals transmitted using pulse-code modulation (PCM) and time-division multiplexing (TDM). DS2 is four DS1 signals multiplexed together to produce a rate of 6.312 Mbps. DS3, the signal in the T3 carrier, carries a multiple of 28 DS1 signals or 672 DS0s or 44.736 Mbps.

Digital signal X is based on the ANSI T1.107 guidelines. The ITU-TS guidelines differ somewhat. The following table summarizes the set of signals and relates them to the T-carrier and E-carrier systems.

Thanks for this post. I installed <a href="http://www.thinkalso.com/20-steps-to-speed-up-windows-10-8-1/">windows 10 </a>yesterday but I was facing slow speed issue. Today I followed your instruction and now my PC is running awesome.
