Telecommunication Industry

The Telecommunication industry consists of companies that make hardware, produce software, and provide services.

Hardware includes a vast range of products that enable communication across the entire planet, from video broadcasting satellites to telephone handsets to fiber-optic transmission cables.

Services include running the switches that control the phone system, providing Internet access, and configuring private networks by which international corporations conduct business.

Software makes it all work, from sending and receiving an e-mail to relaying satellite data to controlling telephone switching equipment to reducing background noise on your cell phone call.
