Why Telecommunications Are Essential In Our Daily Living

Aug 27, 2008
The telecommunications market is one that has affected practically every individual in the world. This connects the world to each other through a touch of a button, logging onto the internet or even simply by picking up a telephone. More people are hooked up to the internet therefore, using the net as way of connecting to other people. These ways are as such much cheaper, clearer, convenient and requires very little knowledge in technology.

Telecommunications equipment have come far since the days of sending out smoke signals, delivering hand written letters via a personal postman or by sending a telegram. These have come as far as allowing people to call others through internet telephony, which if the other party has installed the same software is able to contact their friends free of charge. These software programmes require the other party to be registered and add each other into their contacts profile.

One of the most popular voice-over internet protocol (VOIP) is Skype, which allows you to make the free telephone calls, as long as the other person is added or has added you as their contact. Like MSN it works similarly to a messenger service as people are able to message each other. The only other kind of telecommunications equipment needed is a microphone, headset or a specially developed Skype phone to which people are able to phone each other - kind of like a land line.

These only function if one has a broadband internet connection. This allows a faster connection time, better audio connectivity and a reduced amount of lag. This can be a problem for most VOIP users who find themselves listening to a person's voice which is 30 seconds delayed.

Other types of telecommunications equipment which have taken a further step forward are mobile phone devices. Back during the 1980s when mobile phones were charging an extortionate amount per minute for a phone call, these were heavy duty devices which struggled with providing a clear signal for good quality audio. This was also something more common amongst the rich and wealthy who had plenty of cash to spare.

Mobile phone devices are now far more advanced, are cheaper to use and do not always need to be held against the ear for a good quality conversation maker. Now these babies can be used without even holding the handset, using a hands free speaker, or through using an earpiece for more confidentiality. Many of which now come with video phoning, Bluetooth connection, internet WAP technology, chat room messaging, interactive screens and much more. From being a once so simple device to make calls, now a technological mind field.

If something as simple as a mobile phone device can be made into an advanced communication and information provider then one must wonder on what the future holds for the telecommunications business. People are able to make them visual when making telephone calls to others providing the setting is right and there are no external disturbances. Telecommunications equipment is more of a necessity than they ever have been, especially for large organisations and businesses. These allow for faster transference of information and communication over greater distances.
