The telecommunications networks are a critical part of our global communications network. There are many different types of networks, but the most common type is called the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The PSTN connects people around the world by providing voice and data services. In this blog post, we will go over what they are, how 5G works in them, and more!
What are telecommunications networks?
- The PSTN connects millions of people around the world by providing voice and data services. It is a public network that anyone can access, which means it has to be reliable in order for companies to succeed through their communications with customers, clients, and other employees. The PSTN includes all the physical wires connecting different locations as well as computers or devices at those locations (telephony).
How does technology work in these types of networks?
- Data streams use internet protocol (IP) packets to transmit information from one computer system across an interconnected set of local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), and other networks.
What is an internet protocol (IP) packet?
- An IP packet contains a header and optionally, data. The IP header has information about how the packets should be routed through different networks to reach their destination system. This includes addressing, port number, flags, time-to-live (TTL), etcetera! Data streams use this type of technology in telecommunications networks for communication across LANs and WANs.
What is a data stream?
- A data stream can vary in size, but it’s typically large files that need to be transferred from one computer system to another quickly. An example of this would be streaming videos or music on the internet with services like Netflix. Data streams are information transmitted across interconnected networks at present time as we use computers more often for everyday tasks such as shopping online, paying bills, communicating with friends and family, etcetera!

Threats in telecommunications?
- The most common threat to PSTN networks is at the local level. This includes towers and buildings that can disrupt the signal, as well as people who break through the wires. One issue with PSTN networks is that power in areas can fluctuate. As a result, digital data transmission can be disrupted. PSTN networks are also potentially hacked, which means they are not 100% secure for communications.
Addiction of users to the Internet?
Due to the easy and wide access to telecommunications services, threats appear not only to the network itself, but also to users.
Addiction to the Internet is a prevalent issue that has many different manifestations. From social media, to video games, and more, people are getting addicted to these different mediums. The brain becomes accustomed to the fast-paced stimulation it gets from these kinds of activities, and it can become dependent on them at a certain point. These stimulants can lead users down destructive paths such as spending too much time on their devices or developing addictive behaviors where they need complete escape from reality – for example in video games. It is important to educate children and potential future adults about the dangers of addiction that come with exposure to these types of devices.
