Summary:
Communications technology is everywhere. We send and receive information through televisions, internet, email, radio, text message and social media. This program goes into depth about how electronic communication has evolved over time. Whether using an old rotary phone or some new technology, there are basic principles behind each that many of us are unfamiliar with. Land line telephones send sound waves that are converted into electrical impulses that work with a series of switches and routing devices that open an electrical pathway to whomever you're calling. More commonly, cell phones operate by means of a modulated electromagnetic wave – basically a radio. These signals connect to an electronic communications network. Metropolitan areas are divided into small networks where antennas send and receive signals depending on the user's location.
