Alternative forms[edit]


signalling event (plural signalling events)

  1. A transmitter encodes data by producing a signal which is a continuous stream of signalling events each which has sufficient information for the receiver to recover the original data. Just like a quantum leap is the smallest measurable leap, a signalling event is the smallest possible amount of signal that the receiver needs to recover the original data without error.
  2. (telecommunications) A change of the state of a communication channel, each state representing a symbol that is to be transmitted.
