The baseband or lowpass network can be compared (ufavourably) with the broadband network. A baseband network sends signals using only one frequency, with therefore discrete electrical pulses.
Even the entire bandwidth of a baseband system carries only one data signal. The information that travels down the wire depends on the wire itself for its carriage. Ethernet is an example. However, baseband can transfer frequencies that are very near zero.
The amount of bandwidth available on a broadband transmission system is much greater as it uses analogue signalling, instead of the digital signalling used by baseband. There are uses for baseband but the system only works when the channel is not busy unless channel sharing is set up.
True-baseband technology can carry only one signal at a time. it is typically used in a local area network (lan) environment where the medium is shared by all computers. an example of this is ethernet or token ring. only one system can transmit at a time, and that systems signal is the only one that can occupy the communication channel or medium. broadband technology, not baseband technology, can carry more than one signal at a time. an example of this is the cable television (catv) network, which provides many channels over a single cable installation.
