Change is not easy but very important. The telecommunication industry is an industry that has experienced a lot of changes over the years. Before it was the age where people used to communicate using different traditional methods. The people of all use smoke as a visual communication means well for audio the preferred using drumbeats, blowing horns, blowing the loud whistle to name but a few. After A short time there was evolvement communication to telecommunication. Later on, people were able to speak by voice over a long distance by the use of telephones which was an improvement from the use of telegraphs.
Another important change that took place in the telecommunication industry is the use of the Internet and other data networking services. The changes cannot be ignored especially in the modern generation as they are enjoying the many changes that have occurred in the telecommunication industry, for example, video conferencing, instant messaging, data transportation, web browsing, emailing to name but a few.
When telecommunication was evolving, people used to have traditional copper cables or wires which have changed over time to the use of terrestrial wireless cables, satellite, broadband fiber transport, hybrid fibers and so on.At this point, telecommunication can be thought of as both a product and the service. Telecommunication is a product because you can buy the telecommunication equipment which in turn can be a service if these installation services are done for you. For example, most people today are using the Wi-Fi either collected to their computers or their local area network meaning that if you have to access the Wi-Fi, you need to have the support of the voice over Internet protocol or VOIP package installed for you. Telecommunications, therefore, is the combination of many devices, facilities, equipment networks and technologies to communicate for some distance.
Many businesses and organizations, therefore, can benefit a lot from the use of telecommunication systems. For instance, you can be having many branches of your business across the world, and for you to communicate effectively, you need to use the telecommunication channels. One of the examples of telecommunication systems that you can adapt for your business is the use of video conferencing also called teleconferencing in case you are having a meeting with other managers in different branches across the globe.
Telecommunication is important also in a setting of our society because people are better positioned to participate in any development going on. Also, governments should adapt to the telecommunication systems because they provide important infrastructure for national security for example when communicating with the military.
