The telecommunication sector is actually something additional to just telephone services. In addition to the transmission of information it also includes activities and processes which allow access to a certain networks including the internet.
Telecommunications systems have become a noteworthy ingredient of modern economy. The prompt speed of technological modifications in telecommunications such as high-speed access, VoIP solutions, operations support systems, enveloping communications,
gateways, flex telephony, housing and business communications styles and patterns and its insidious consequence on economics obscures the perceptive of this embryonic Industry and its prospective for growth strategies. Since the demand for telecommunications services is totally simultaneous with urban size, a liberal impact on cities is expected.
The unpretentious expansion of telecommunications services revenue enjoyed by carriers worldwide during 2004 and 2005 is predicted to continue in 2006 and 2007. Three quarters of a trillion dollars flowed into the telecom industry during the tech bubble of the late 1990s, but after several brutal years watching telecom industry fortunes being driven downward with the attendant layoffs, insolvencies, and even a few accounting scandals in 2005 the telecommunications industry turned the corner.
Telecommunication means the transmission of information and data from one party to another through wire or wireless medium. Now a days, there are two methods of transmission which are employed in telecommunication, analogue transmission and digital transmission.
Modern telecommunication revolutions like internet, VoIP solutions, broadband etc. are using digital transmission as it is much faster and reliable in terms of data security and data transfer in comparison with that of analogue transmission.
With the arrival of 3G technology in the field of mobile telecommunications, this period can be referred as a golden period of telecommunications. 3G technologies will allow the users to share large amount of data, whether it is in the form of text, graphics, sounds or high streaming videos among them and that too within few seconds. 3G is all about better bandwidth and high speed data transfer. One can easily watch movies, edit and send electronic mails, video chat and perform other variety of activities thanks to 3G technology.
At the same time, technologies like W-CDMA (Wideband CDMA), GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) and EDGE (Enhanced Data Rate for Global Evolution) are already established and accepted in global telecommunication market and their usage charges is the major constituent of the revenues of the telecommunication company the world over. In fact, these technologies have packed down the whole world in the mobile handset.
Not only this, the booming service sector in global economy and the emerging BPOs (Business Process Outsourcing) are employing high end technologies like VoIP solutions and IP telephony systems for managing and running the day to day operations. Companies like AVAYA which are behind providing these facilities are making heavy profits and a major share of this profit is invested in research and development and for the advancement of the technologies and services of telecommunication sector.
Modern scientists are working on a concept known as information superhighway. This expression generally refers to an influential electronic network that would be created by combining telephone systems with cable television systems and computer networks. This information expressway could provide massive amounts of data and a wide assortment of services to users in homes, schools, and businesses. Through interactive data, voice, and video, the superhighway could modify not only how people communicate, but also how they exist, study, and work.
