    Hi guys

    So what is one-hop communication? Does it mean the data go through only one hop like from 2 - 1 - M? Or just 1 - M?

    Thanks guys!

    PS: in wireless device
    PS2: it's in this document, page 5.

    Hi, I have read that, but I am still not sure which one of the following is a hop in networking:
    • M <---> 1, or
    • M <---> 1 <---> 2
    Which one is a hop?

    Thanks

    Assuming M and 2 are computers, and 1 is a router, then M<-->1<-->2 would be one hop. But I don't know what your diagram is supposed to mean, so I might be mis-interpreting it.

    1-would be the main node center
    2-this would be the relay where the "hop" occurs-sometime this is called a relay station.
