### Baud rate vs. Bit rate

When we initialize a serial communication, we usually have to set the baud rate (e.g. 115200) I notice that many people assume that 115200 means 115200 bits per second. However, each baud(signal ...

### Signal rate, data rate and bandwidth in digital signals

I'm trying to understand the concept of signal rate and the relation between signal (baud) rate and bandwidth of digital signals from a book about data communication. First, the book distinguishes ...

### Does the fundamental frequency affect the bit rate on a wire?

This is from the book Computer Networks by Tennenbaum: The bandwidth is still the width of the band of frequencies that are passed, and the information that can be carried depends only on this ...

### Why is “throughput” called “bandwidth”?

But back in school, I had learned that the "bandwidth" of a communication channel is the frequency of the highest-frequency signal minus that of the lowest-frequency signal that it can carry. Yet in ...

### What is the speed of a baud rate? - RN42

After wondering/researching about this for days, I finally ask this question: What is the speed (bits per second) of a bluetooth SPP RN-42 device? Is 1 baud = 1 bit (thus 9600 baud = 9600 bits per ...

### Why more bandwidth means more bit rate per second? [duplicate]

According to this link ( and some other sources I have found ) more bandwidth on a wire means more bit rates per second... Can someone try to explain why this is so as simple as possible? This is ...
