Telecommunications is about the transmission of information across a range of channels by electronic means. The most simple form of telecommunications is between two stations. Now a days, multiple transmitting and receiving stations can exchange data among themselves through a telecommunications network. The Internet is the largest example of such a network.

The technological changes that have taken place in modern telecommunications, from blogging to pod-casting, video streaming and text messaging. Technical engineers made this possible by providing the methods to transmit and receive data.

The transmission of data is changing the way we live and this makes telecoms an exciting, challenging, and constantly evolving area of ICT to work in.

Telecommunications Engineers plan, design, implement and monitor communication systems and services. This area can also deal with the collection and processing of remotely sensed data from satellite and GPS, aircraft and ship radars.

Telecommunications Technicians install, repair and maintain telecommunications equipment. There is a big demand for these in the mobile technology sector. Software-defined networks (SDNs) are networks of equipment that seperate hardware from software. In todays networks, most management is carried out by people but SDNs are going to change that by automating many processes to reduce human input and the mistakes that can be made. Therefore, IT professionals will need new skills.
