Data Compression
  Data Compression  

       Data Compression reduces the size of data frames to be transmitted over a network link. Reducing the size of a frame reduces the time required to transmit the frame across the network. Data compression provides a coding scheme at each end of a transmission link that allows characters to be removed from the frames of data at the sending side of the link and then replaced correctly at the receiving side. Because the condensed frames take up less bandwidth, we can transmit greater volumes at a time.


       We refer to the data compression schemes used in internetworking devices as lossless compression algorithms. These schemes reproduce the original bit streams exactly, with no degradation or loss. This feature is required by routers and other devices to transport data across the network. The two most commonly used compression algorithms on internetworking devices are the Stacker compression and the Predictor data compression algorithms.
