QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation)

QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) is a technique that combines two amplitude modulation (AM) signals into one channel. QAM translates digital packets into an analog signal to transmit data.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation)

QAM provides many advantages, including increased data rates, higher noise immunity, reduced errors, increased efficiency, and greater bandwidth. At the same time, it is more prone to create noise. Different types of QAM are used for AM radio and cable television as well as wireless, cellular and digital platforms. In particular, the technique works well for improving home-based Wi-Fi and high-speed ethernet connections. For SMBs, quality connections are vital whether working onsite or from a home office.
