Phase - Telecommunications

In electronic signaling, phase is a definition of the position of a point in time (instant) on a waveform cycle. A complete cycle is defined as 360 degrees of phase as shown in the illustation to the right. Phase can also be an expression of relative displacement between or among waves having the same frequency.
