The means through which data is transformed from one place to another is called transmission or communication media. There are two categories of transmission media used in computer communications. (1) Bounded/Guided Media. (2) UnBounded/UnGuided Media Bounded/Guided Media Bounded media are the physical links through which signals are confined to narrow path.
