What is the difference between Transmission and Communication?


Transmission is a physical movement of information and concern issues like bit polarity, synchronisation, clock etc.


Communication means the meaning full exchange of information between two communication media.


Transmission can be looked into as an issue of lower layers like physical layer, while communication is an activity about which user is concerned and is related with application layer activity. Transmission looks at the actual techniques used for data transfer whereas communication looks at user aspects and deals with whole messages instead of raw bits.
