Attenuation Isn’t Just a Wireless Problem

Imagine dropping a big rock into the center of a quiet, totally still pond: the waves would easily reach shore. But now imagine dropping a small rock into a lake filled with floating logs, sticks and leaves: the waves would weaken as they pushed through the stuff in the way and probably wouldn’t reach shore.

That’s what attenuation is — the weakening of a radio signal. The signal can be weakened by objects it has to work around, the thickness of the atmosphere, or other signals. It’s easy to imagine how this would affect Wi-Fi broadcasts or wireless transmissions. But attenuation is also a problem that has to be solved for wired and cabled networks.

Attenuation in cabled networks can be caused by power cables, radio wave interference or electric currents. When a cabled signal experiences attenuation, the signal strength can deteriorate and the signal transmission can be lost altogether.
