Most current data transmission systems are either analog or digital. On most analog systems, the data can be a continuous stream, but the current analog transmission lines lack efficiency. Current digital transmission lines use fiber optics cables to send the encoded analog signal, which has much higher efficiency. The problem with the digital transmission is that the original analog signal has to be broken down into binary data, which in turn produces a longer stream of data. To solve this data lengthening, most transmission technologies use the idea of compression.
