Noise and destortion immunity:-when analog signal is transmitted in free space for long distances it will be distorted and no an ideal recovery done in receiver to recover the exact signal which transmitted ,but in digital communication digital signal consist of 2 levels only zero or one (not like the analog one , it has infinite numbers of values or levels at each period of time),so digital signal can be recovered easily and excactly like transmitted one.
Hint : Device that used to pattially recover the analog signal after a certain distance is called repeater ,from its name it receives transmitted analog signal and filter it and amplify it and transmitt it),but in digital transmission it is different ,the device used for recovering digital signal which transmitted from acertain distance is called regenerative repeaters ,it receives transmitted digital signal and recover it to regenrate a new exact signal like received one then retransmitt it for further distance.

Why digital communications and what its advantages over analog communication ,first you have to know what is the difference between analog signal and digital signal.
Analog signal
analog signal is continuous time signal i.e. it has a value at any moment of time and it has infinite number of valus , such as dinusoidal signal ,you can substitute X with any value and you will have an value in Y in the follwing sin relation Y=sin(X).
