To transmit the data without using cables, then Microwave signals are used.

Microwave signals are used for long distance communication and are similar to radio and television signals.

The microwave transmission basically consists of a transmitter, receiver, and the atmosphere.

In case of microwave communication, parabolic antennas are mounted on towers to send a beam to the other antennas tens of kilometers away. The higher the towers means the greater the range.

With a use of tower that is 100 meter high, then distances of 100 km between the towers are feasible.

The microwave transmission is line-of-sight transmission.
