Hereof, what is the difference between character and bit oriented protocols?
Bit-oriented protocols transmit information without regard to character boundaries and thus handle all types of information images. Bit-oriented protocols are much less overhead-intensive, as compared to byte-oriented protocols, also known as character-oriented protocols.
Subsequently, question is, which technique is used in byte oriented protocols? Byte stuffing is used at byte-oriented protocols and bit stuffing is used at bit-oriented protocols.
Subsequently, question is, what do you mean by bit oriented protocol?
A bit-oriented protocol is a communications protocol that sees the transmitted data as an opaque stream of bits with no semantics, or meaning. Control codes are defined in terms of bit sequences instead of characters. Bit oriented protocol can transfer data frames regardless of frame contents.
Why are computers byte oriented?
byte-oriented protocol - Computer Definition A text-oriented synchronous communications protocol that handles only full bytes or characters of text, thereby requiring an entire byte to communicate a command signal to the target station.
