The Problem: Noise is a random and unpredictable natural phenomenon that occurs everywhere. In RF communication systems; whether wireless, microwave, satellite, audio or video, noise emanates from every component inside the system, sending out "unwanted" signals through the network. Since RF communication receivers often have to process weak signals, the unwanted noise signal, even if it comes from the tiniest component in the system, can easily obscure a signal, resulting in poor overall system performance.
