What are some important telecommunications concepts

telecommunications

Telecommunication is derived from the Greek "tele", which means "far" or "distant".

In order to overcome spatial boundaries, mankind developed techniques for conveying information early on. For example, drums or signal horns.
While telecommunication was mainly driven by military interests in the early days, today it is the communicative person who has the need to communicate with other people. Not only technical transmission systems were developed, but also communication media that also organize information and messages.

Since the 19th century, the development of telecommunications has made a real quantum leap. From the first telegraph to the satellite cell phone. Computer networks and the Internet have radically changed the way we communicate. The need to transmit data and information is so great today that there are sometimes even bottlenecks within the transmission systems. Especially in the area of ​​mobile communications.
The transmission of data, in whatever form, has become the predominant application for all communication networks. Even speech is digitized and packed into a data format in order to transmit it with other forms of communication over the same transmission medium.

Internet

With the Internet, a global network has emerged in which any data packet can be transported to any recipient. The ubiquitous connectivity is the reason why the entire economy is in a state of upheaval. All organizations and companies are affected.

Concepts in telecommunications

The TK market is hardly growing any more. More and more landline and mobile network operators are feeling this. Only individual areas are generating higher sales at times. Telecommunications providers are therefore increasingly entering other market areas that they combine with their core competence, the operation of communication networks. Fixed line, mobile and internet are growing together and promoting customer-oriented tariffs and products for special target groups.
Today, mobile broadband Internet, IP technology and full-service offerings (triple play) determine the strategies of telecommunications companies. In the future, the transmission systems for telephony, television and data services will grow together to form a universal system.
