Evolution of Communications
Evolution of CommunicationsApril 5, 2016
Communications has evolved rapidly through time that a lot of changes and innovations were made. Gone are the days where cuneiform was highly used in Egypt, where we use smoke in the era of Ming Dynasty to signal messages from one place to another, when Plato uses pigeon pots to carry small written letter to Socrates, where we heavily rely on traditional post mail just to send and receive letters.
Our communication has improved its technology from smokes signals, to pigeon carriers, to telegraphs, to computers and to smart phones inside our pockets.
The means of communication is as vital as the message itself.
Today, businesses do not go on without any telephone line for they use it as a quick way to talk to anyone, whether it is inside or outside the premises of the company. Also, internet has been widely used for personal or for business matters. When you apply for these two separate entities with different lines – especially for telephones that needs a huge number of connections; it will definitely cost you a hefty amount of money.
The technology we have today offer solutions that make communication better, faster and more reliable. Using the internet as a medium to transfer calls and messages, keeping it cost effective is where VoIP comes in. It is a diverse set up, rather than using traditional circuit transmissions of the PSTN. You can communicate as many channels as possible. VoIP is faster because it highly relies on the internet and can be programmed to pass through one line. More importantly it has a great security system that prevents unintended information leaks.
VoIP make business transactions easier and make work smoothly. VoIP works on perfecting communications as to every aspect of sending and receiving information. If businesses consider its manpower as assets, communication is the backbone of the company. This is the same reason why most businesses invest on their communication infrastructure.
