In telecommunications a transmission system is a system that transmits a signal from one place to another. The signal can be an electrical, optical or radio signal.

Some transmission systems contain multipliers, which amplify a signal prior to re-transmission, or regenerators, which attempt to reconstruct and re-shape the coded message before re-transmission.

One of the most widely used transmission system technologies in the Internet and the PSTN is SONET.

Also, transmission system is the medium through which data[information] is transmitted from one point[computer] to another. Examples of common transmission systems people use everyday are: the internet, mobile network, cordless cables, etc.
