Intercloud is a term used in IT to refer to a theoretical model for cloud computing services. The idea of the intercloud relies on models that have already been shown to be effective in cases like the global Internet and the 3G and 4G wireless networks of various national telecom providers. Experts sometimes refer to the intercloud as a cloud of...
Line of sight (LoS) is a type of propagation that can transmit and receive data only where transmit and receive stations are in view of each other without any sort of an obstacle between them. FM radio, microwave and satellite transmission are examples of line-of-sight communication.
Long-distance data communication is more effective through wireless networks but geographical obstacles and the curvature of the earth bring limitations to line-of-sight transmission. However, these issues can generally be mitigated through planning, calculations and the use of additional technologies. For example, mobile phones use a modified line-of-sight transmission, which is made possible through a combination of effects like diffraction, multipath reflection, local repeaters and rapid handoff.
