Telecom Devices And Their Technical Features

Telecom is unarguably a household name in the contemporary global community, meaning literally that even a dummy is expected to be familiar with its existence.

Telecom is the short form of telecommunication. The term is often used in its plural form, telecommunications, because it involves many different technologies.

Telecom is the transmission of signs, signals, messages, writings, sounds and/or images via wire, radio, or optical system, among other electromagnetic systems. It enables communication to take place between two parties that are separated by a certain distance.

Telecommunication occurs when the exchange of information between two or more communication participants involves the use of technology. In other words, it is the apt use of tech effects to initiate communication between individuals situated in different localities..

It is transmitted either electrically over physical media such as cables, or via electromagnetic radiation. Suchlike transmission paths are usually divided into communication channels, which afford the advantages of multiplexing.

It’s noteworthy that there are several modern telecom devices in existence. Telecom devices are those equipment that are being used by end users through telecom networks. Telecom networks could be any such network as mobile, exchange, and dedicated networks, or point to point links.

In the present days’ societies, common examples of telecom devices are computers, fax machines, radio cum television sets, satellites, masts, transmitters, trackers, and cell phones, among others.

This piece was informed by the compelling need for the overall users of the aforementioned devices to acknowledge how best to handle, or stay around, them towards avoiding numerous dangers inherent in their respective uses and functionalities.

It’s worth noting that the continued wrong use cum handling of these devices has caused an untold harm to the human body and the society at large, although their impact on societal wellbeing and growth cannot be overemphasized.

Each of these devices comprises Electromagnetic Field (EMF) that emits Electromagnetic Rays/Radiation (EMR) while they are in use. Many people worldwide are yet to realize they are chronically exposed to something that can deteriorate their health, because EMR is invisible and odourless, and cannot be felt any anyone.

This implies that unless EMR is duly identified and remediated, it can lead to countless health complications as well as premature death. It would shock you to note that millions of individuals have already died owing to their exposure to the said effect that could best be described as a silent killer.

The hidden truth is that EMR exposure, which is reckoned to be the silent enemy endangering the lives of millions of individuals and professionals across the globe, is far worse than cigarette smoke than we could imagine. It is a proven fact and equally verifiable scientifically.

Keep in mind that all health issues would be affected to an extent by exposure to EMR, since it weakens the immune system, stresses the body and damages healthy cells. The higher the frequency of the radiation, the more damage it is likely to cause to the body.

Common diseases caused by EMR are, but not limited to, cancer, chronic fatigue, constant headache, migraine, asthma, cardiovascular diseases, chest pain, insomnia, allergies, electrosensitivity (ES), high blood pressure, brain fag, leukemia, birth defects, miscarriages, and stress.

Others include nausea, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, skin conditions like burning, rashes and pain, as well as tinnitus, and erratic pulse. While the most acute exposures to harmful levels of EMR are immediately realized as burns, the health effects due to chronic or occupational exposure may not manifest for months, or even years.

Safekeeping of the cell phones in one’s trousers’ pocket can harm the person’s reproductive organs owing to the EMR being emitted by the phone, and such experience can make the person sterile if apt and drastic attention isn’t given to the victim.

People aren’t advised to keep any phone in their pockets. It is called a handset, so keep it in your hand. The truth is that EMR can penetrate through any part of the human skin, thus even when the gadget is in our hands, we should ensure that it is kept in a special pack or casing that can reduce the frequency of its radiation. We ought to be informed that the rate of the radiation depends mainly on the type and mechanism of the phone in question.

If we are at home or in the office, we ought to endeavour to keep them away from our body. For those who can engage in a chat for several hours, you really need to cut down the excesses, because you are inadvertently endangering your health. The point is that, you shouldn’t overuse the phone at a time.

The broadcasting/telephone masts mounted amidst residential settlements have caused tremendous harm to the affected residents, unknowingly to them. Wherever a mast is mounted, no one is expected to live anywhere around it. Dwellers are required to live at least a kilometer (1km) away from any mast in use. Even offices are not advised to be located near a mast.

Those working at broadcasting stations should keep off from where the FM/TV transmitter is kept, unless when they want to make some changes on the machine. This warning is invariably boldly inscribed on any transmitter and even in the manual, but several users still end up relegating the instructions to the background.

Similarly, don’t stay very close to your radio/TV set when they are in use. Aside your TV/phone screen that can damage your eyes’ retina, the EMR emitted by these gadgets is far more dangerous to health. The children must be guided in this regard.

Computers such as laptops are not left out. They are called laptops, but that doesn’t imply you are meant to place them directly on your bare skin. Place a tangible material on your laps before putting a laptop on them. The desktop shouldn’t equally have direct contact with the user’s body.

Away from body contact, towards avoiding fire outbreak, endeavour to keep those devices away from flames or flammable zones like gas cookers, filling stations and power lines, because EMR is highly inflammable.

Though these technological facts are inevitable, no one is asking you to henceforth start seeing telecom devices as your enemies; rather, you are only advised to apply reasonable caution while using them.
