What language is required for a microcomputer to interface to the Internet?
Many businesses support microcomputer to mainframe connections, including colleges and universities. What “language” must a microcomputer talk in order to interface with the internet? Some form of TCP/IP protocol.
What is the use of micro computer?
Microcomputer applications In the workplace, microcomputers have been used for applications including data and word processing, electronic spreadsheets, professional presentation and graphics programs, communications and database management systems.
What are the characteristics of micro computer?
The essential characteristics of these microcomputers are:
- Small size and low cost.
- One user.
- Easy to use.
- Low computing power.
- Commonly used for personal application.
Which system is connected by telephone to a micro computer?
Modems allows computers to use ordinary telephone lines. The modem translates digital information (such as found on a CD) to sound (analog information), and sends it over the telephone network. The modem receiving the information translates the analog information back into digital form and sends it on to the computer.
What kind of applications might use a sensor network?
Area monitoring is a common application of WSNs. In area monitoring, the WSN is deployed over a region where some phenomenon is to be monitored. A military example is the use of sensors to detect enemy intrusion; a civilian example is the geo-fencing of gas or oil pipelines.
What are servers in computer?
In computing, a server is a piece of computer hardware or software (computer program) that provides functionality for other programs or devices, called “clients”. This architecture is called the client–server model. A single server can serve multiple clients, and a single client can use multiple servers.
What is Micro computer system?
The term microcomputer is used to describe a system that includes a minimum of a microprocessor, program memory, data memory, and input–output (I/O). Thus, a microcomputer system can be anything from a large computer having hard disks, floppy disks, and printers to a single-chip embedded controller.
How do sensors communicate?
The sensor nodes can communicate among themselves using radio signals. A wireless sensor node is equipped with sensing and computing devices, radio transceivers and power components. Wireless sensor devices also respond to queries sent from a “control site” to perform specific instructions or provide sensing samples.
What do I need to connect my computer to the Internet?
A wireless connection (Wi-Fi) is done using a 802.11b, 802.11g or 802.11n wireless network card. With both connection types, a network router is usually required to connect to other computers. Connecting to the Internet at your home also requires either a cable modem or a DSL modem, depending on which ISP you use.
How does a computer communicate with the Internet?
Using a network connection, including connecting to the Internet, computers connect to each other to transmit data between them and communicate with each other using the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol).
How is communication between two computer systems achieved?
Communication between two or more computer systems is achieved by setting up a network. The computer systems are linked so that they can ‘talk’ to each other, share computing power and/or storage facilities. You should know the benefits of networking computers and the main types of networks.
Do you need a NIC card to connect to the Internet?
If the rules are not followed, the computer will not be able to connect to another computer, nor send and receive data between other computers. To connect to the Internet and other computers on a network, a computer must have a NIC (network interface card) installed.
