9P is a network protocol developed by Bell Labs which serves as a means to connect the components of a Plan 9 system. The Plan 9 system is a distributed OS designed to serve as a platform for research purposes. It represents all system interfaces through the file system. The files are regarded as the key objects and used to represent windows,...
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.
