The History/Background

Introduction

Telecommunications is one of the most potent forces in the world today. It influences every one of us as an individual. As each year passes, telecommunications grows in scope. The early pioneers of rapid would never recognize today’s vast array of electronic media—broadcast television, cable TV, direct broadcast satellite, multimedia, video cassettes, the internet just to name a few. Neither would they recognize the structure that evolved in such areas as regulation, advertising, and audience measurement. They would marvel that their early concepts of equipment have led to such developments as audiotape recorders, cameras, videotape, recorders, digital effects generators, nonlinear editors, computer graphics and satellites. If they could see the quantity and variety of programming available today, they might not recognize that it all began with amateurs listening for radio signals on their primitive crystal sets. All indications are that telecommunications will continue to change at a rapid pace. As it does, it will further affect society. All people, whether they be individuals working in the telecommunications field or individual members of society have a right to become involved with media and have an obligation to understand why people need to interact media. Some knowledge of the background and structure of the industry is an essential basis for this understanding. It is a fast paced business with major changes occurring almost daily. It is also young a product of the twentieth century. Although the pervasive influence of telecommunications has occurred in a short space of time, its intensity compensates for its youth. Telecommunication is a special form of technology, it reminds the reader that he/she is familiar and comfortable with much technology in the home and office, paying special attention to the telecommunications based technology.

Because these are the data communications technologies.

If telecommunication didn't exist then we would be impacted greatly. There would be no working at home, no way to speak to loved ones who lived distant to us. We would be shut down. The way I see it, the world as a whole would be impacted without it. I think it brings us all together by giving us a way to express thoughts and transmit information.

2.What are the role of telecom on this society? Telecommunication plays an important role in our life today. Generally telecommunication is the transmission of signal over a distance for purpose of sending information. By sharing information, human can get such a development today. information is even considered to be one of standard criteria to assess life quality of a man. Life quality of a man is assessed according to the amount of information he get and means of approaching information. In earlier time telecommunication was done slowly by mean of simple methods such as the use of smoke signals, drums, semaphore, flags or heliograph, and usually could transfer a bit of information. For example, the use of smoke by Indian can be understood as...
