Shannon’s law

Shannon’s law defines the theoretical maximum rate at which error free digits can be transmitted over a bandwidth limited channel in the presence of noise. It is usually expressed in the form C = W log2(1 + S/N ), where C is the channel capacity in bits per second, W is the bandwidth in Hertz, and S/N is the SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio).
