Global Positioning System (GPS)

Telecommunications involves the transmission of information from a sender to a receiver through an electromagnetic or light-wave medium. Data transfer is an important feature in telecommunications operations and it needs accurate timing.

In a telecommunications network, switches directing digital signals have to synchronize with each other, so that the data does not become corrupt or lost. Timely data transfer and synchronization are guaranteed by atomic clocks, which are the best timekeepers. Thus, atomic clock timing is a fundamental component of national and international telecommunications networks.

Atomic clock stability is crucial to the smooth functioning of a mobile network. Without accurate time, there can be no proper functioning of the Internet, mobile phones, and e-mails. The distribution of voice and data around the world via a telecommunications network is very much dependent on accurate timing. Voice and data units are time-stamped to enable the transmitted elements to …

Telecommunications provides a lot for the world

Communication has been one of the most important aspects of the growth of human society and culture. Without it so many things would not get done, people would be divided, and the world would not be how it is. Telecommunications, the transmission of signals over a distance for a purpose of communication, is also very important.

Telecommunications has a long and creative history behind it. One of the first means of telecommunications, and maybe the first one actually, was the use of smoke signals. In classical and ancient times, this was a very effective means of communication in a smaller, more rural world. Other older methods included the use of sound by such things as drums and horns. Flags, lamps and special towers were uses of optical telecommunication. Later development with a more advanced civilization and an industrious society allowed for the creature of telegraphs, radio, television, and eventually the internet.

The telephone system

Expanding small to medium size (SMS) business firms have long faced the dilemma of how to best grow their telephone and fax services at affordable prices. The transition of going from simple key telephone systems to ownership and operation of a Private Branch eXchange (PBX) phone system involves a large capital outlay, monthly operational and maintenance costs, and the acceptance of risks associated with technical obsolesence. Traditional telephone companies addressed this need by offering Centrex service. Centrex provides a hosted telecommunicatons solution where customers rely on their local central office switch to provide PBX-like services but without the capital investment necessary to purchase a switch. Today, hosted telecommunications is rapidly becoming a synonym for a variety of hosted VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service offerings. In this article, we review call quality issues you should consider when deciding if a hosted telecommunications service is the right choic…

Better Online Communication Makes Business Sense

Many companies are now doing the majority or even all their business online and foregoing the “Brick and Mortar” storefront. It is easy to see why that trend has happened. For one thing, the cost of setting up such a business is relatively inexpensive and easy. There is no need to pay for the overhead of a physical building. Also, the cost of maintaining a Web site is minimal. Moreover, the Internet provides a convenient and efficient way of marketing products. As more and more people are spending time on the Internet, the market of online customers continues to grow.

But when businesses shift from face-to-face customers to anonymous online customers, there is a loss of personal connection and trust. All the online spamming and scamming hasn’t helped the matter at all. That has eroded the trust in E-commerce and the credibility of many companies. How are you gaining and maintaining customer trust? What are you doing as an online vendor to communicate to your customers?
