Digital technology is a type of transfer that involves breaking a message or form of communication between two machines down into binary code. Binary code consists of all ones and zeros and can be reassembled upon being read by another piece of equipment that utilizes digital technology. This is a contrast to other, older types of technology that used other forms of information transfer and couldn't move data as quickly.
