# Data Transfer Rate Converter

the data transfer rate term is used in order to measure the speed of data transfer from one location to other location, now let’s take some examples in order to understand this concept, in this era there is hardly anyone who haven’t used pen drive now when we transfer data into pen drive form your device, you would have seen the speed of transfer of data is shown, this is the data transfer rate of the pen drive and in addition to this you have heard the data transfer data as 480 Mbps or sort or this is actually at what speed the data can be transferred.

## Data Transfer Rate calculator

data transfer rate can be defined as the amount of data can be transferred someone place to another place in any particular time and in addition to this we can also define the data transfer rate as speed at which data travel from one place to other, here the speed of the transfer of the data is proportional to the bandwidth of the path, if the bandwidth of the given path is high then we can say that the speed of the transfer of the data will be high.

Just to have a clear idea, resemble the idea which the speed of vehicle movement, we take the speed of the vehicle in terms of how fast the vehicle can reach from one position to other position similarly, the data transfer is the speed at which data transfer from one system to other.

UNITS

The concept of bits or bytes per second is used in order to measure the speed of the transfer.  There one thing to note that bit and byte aren’t the same, 8 bits in total makes a byte, bits, and bytes are the main units which is used in telecommunication, now in order to understand this we have checked the speed of internet on our phone, generally the speed of transfer of data is shown as 33.6 Kb, while the internet with high speed will have high internet speed like 10 Mb per second, this is amazing to know that in earlier days units like character or blocks where used in order to calculate the speed of the transfer of data.

Generally they are the routers, hubs, switches are the devices which are used in order to transfer the data from one system to another system and we all are aware of the fact the we have all around of the devices like RAM, CD-ROM or hard disk or microprocessor these devices have their own data transfer rate which is measured in terms of milliseconds.

Measurement

in the world of computer science, all the data transfer is measured in terms of bytes per second and in addition to this the highest data transfer rate which is the fastest it date is around 14 terabit per second which is extremely fast, for this transfer optical fiber was used which was done in the year 2006.
