In connection-oriented communication, a data stream is a sequence of digitally encoded coherent signals (packets of data or data packets) used to transmit or receive information that is in the process of being transmitted.
A stream of digital information stemming from a physical or virtual sensor. Data streaming is the process of transferring a stream of data from one place to another, to a sender and recipient or through some network trajectory. Data streaming is applied in multiple ways with various protocols and tools that help provide security, efficient delivery and other data results. Data streaming methods are central to technologies like the Internet, 3G and 4G wireless systems for mobile devices, as well as data handling for business processes in corporate networks. Administrators typically employ precise methods and processes to monitor data streaming and ensure effectiveness and maximum security.
