  • What is telecommunications?

    Telecommunications is the term used to refer to any technology that involves sending signals and messages over long distances – typically using cable, telegraph, telephone, or broadcasting equipment.

    How does telecommunication work?

    In order to function, a telecommunication system is made up of a number of different elements that allow a signal to be carried over distances. Simply put, here’s how a telecommunication system works:

    1. The system needs a transmitter to take the initial piece of information (or message) and convert it to a signal

    2. With the signal ready to go, the system has a transmission medium that carries the signal – such as wire, radio waves or optical cables

    3. Finally, a receiver then takes the signal and convert it back into usable information that can be understood
