Today is World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD).
The world of Telco celebrates this day annually to spread awareness about the opportunities that the Internet and other information and communication technologies are bringing to people, societies, economies, and nations.
As a part of this charming world, LabLabee would like to celebrate this day by giving you a ticket to a short trip from where Telco started to where it is today.
So take a seat, and let me tell you how far telecommunication has come and where it’s headed from this point.
A Brief History of Telecommunication
If you were an immortal being with an omnipresence superpower watching mortal humans coming up with ways to communicate with each other, building on them, making them smarter and faster… I bet if you found yourself in that totally realistic situation, you’d find humans and their constant need to improve nothing less than fascinating.
You’d see humans go from using smoke signals to transmit news to building the first semaphore system.
You’d witness the emergence of the telegraph, and see the latter give birth to the telephone.
And you’ll be there when they invent something that changed everything around them: the Internet, resulting in a continuous series of advancements that led us to where we are today.
You see? Telecommunication wasn’t always this fast, efficient, and advanced… But still, if there’s one thing it has always been, it’s fascinating.
Today, we’re continuing to increase the efficiency of what we have, taking Telco to a whole new level, which is dominated by a new paradigm: Telco Cloud
Merging the two technologies is blurring the line between computers and networks, paving the way for more innovation, resilience, and accessibility.
How Telco Cloud Changed The Game
Continuing the mission started centuries ago for transforming telecommunication, Telco Cloud is now revolutionizing how applications are created and delivered by allowing network functions to move from hardware platforms to cloud infrastructure.
This transformation is essential for 5G networks, because many of the possibilities and services promised by 5G networks can’t be realized without the scalability, flexibility, and agility of the cloud.
Telcos are already altering their networks from physical architectures to virtualized networks, which will dramatically increase agility, foster innovation, and help introduce new services and features at a rapid rate.
That being said, it’s smart to predict that Telco isn’t settling down anytime soon, and that the journey towards revolutionizing the world’s communication is nowhere near its end.
How LabLabee Is Fostering This Growth
LabLabee is proud to push this wave of change a little higher by accelerating the adoption of this new technology. Here are some of the ways we’re doing that:
- No hardware needed: By going hardware-free, we’re making the transition to Telco Cloud faster, smoother, and much more cost-efficient.
- Practice-focused learning: Our learning paths are designed to make training more interactive, which will accelerate knowledge acquisition and keep the learning engaging and interesting.
- Money and time saving: the learning environment can be set up immediately, so students can start learning on their own schedule while saving the cost of the hardware and the setup.
- Technology agnostic labs: We designed labs that give students more freedom, for they don’t tie them with any specific vendor. So they can learn the skills they need, then apply them with any and every vendor they choose.
The telecommunication world is never settling down, and we’re proud to be part of the forces pushing it forward. Today is a gifted opportunity for the world to celebrate how far it has come, and foresee the next steps in its everlasting journey.
