How Telecommunication Have Advanced Over The Years

Aug 1, 2008
When someone mentions the word telecommunications equipment, the first image that springs into the mind of a layperson is a telephone. While this is somewhat accurate in most parts, it is the process of transmitting data over a distance using signals for the purpose of communication or exchanging data information. A telephone is one method of transmitting this information, though this is the most common way of communicating with someone else by vocally exchanging information.

Telecommunications equipment comes in various different forms and not just as a telephone handset. The following are a form of telecommunications equipment, radio, television, internet, computer networks and mobile telephones. These provide data and information in very different ways from each other. Some are designed for visual information, such as the television or computer devices. Televisions are common in practically every home, making it the main form of quick entertainment and fast communicator for vital pieces of information.

Everyone are familiar with a computer and are aware of how this is a more accurate way of receiving messages, obtaining important information and communicating with people over longer distances. Often this can be a more reliable source for trying to reach people, whereby a telephone may not receive and transfer signals well. In the past, making long distance phone calls required much more time to connect, as well as more concentration on trying to listen to each other speak.

The internet is a great source for providing effective communication using voice over internet protocols, such as Skype, MSN Messenger, Vonage, BT and PlusTalk. These are just some of the biggest internet telephony providers, which allow users to connect to and contact other internet telephony users provided they have an account set up and have exchanged profile information with the other party. The difference is there is not always a telephone provided for most of the software (Skype had introduced Skype Phones for users wanting to call landlines) and the connection is via a broadband internet connection.

Telecommunications equipment have taken a step further into allowing people who are deaf or hard of hearing to contact other people using video telephoning, which most telephone company providers offer with their prices. This is ideal especially for people looking to make social calls and can use their sign language skill for effective communication. These come at no further charge and calls are at the same price as normal landline calls.

Some telephones have a specific operating system, which allows you to text, or communicate with an operator through typing. These are ideal for those who cannot afford video telephoning. Text messages on mobile phones and using the internet is another useful tool for people with hearing disabilities to communicate with other people. Instead of perceiving them as expensive objects, they are now an important of our daily living, which means they need to be quicker at transmitting information and accessible to everyone.

These kinds of telecommunication equipment have seen changes from improved audio quality to clear picture quality that allows people to see each other in real time. This is a far cry from the days of sending smoke signals and sending hand-written letters.
