Attenuation

Attenuation is a decline in signal transmission strength between a source and destination. Attenuation is measured in decibels and specifically discusses the current, voltage, or power of a signal. The more attenuation, the more chippy and less coherent a transmitted signal becomes. This may happen due to interference, loss of power, or poorly functioning equipment.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Attenuation

SMBs that are involved in any sort of signal transmission should aim to reduce attenuation. They can do so by upgrading equipment, changing the material of transmission lines, reducing the distance of transmission, etc.
