Telecommunication Engineering or telecom engineering is a quite vast field which comes under electronic engineering. The work ranges from basic circuit design to strategic mass developments; from designing of telecom equipments, electronic switching systems, copper telephone facilities, fibre optics to their installations.

I have turn out to be a normal reader of ones internet site since I stumbled on your site a though again once again. I cannot say that I concur with everything you said having said that it is emphatically enlightening! I will probably be back again

  3. I have realized some new issues from your web page about computer systems. Another thing I have always assumed is that laptop computers have become a specific thing that each family must have for many reasons. They provide convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, shop, study, tune in to music and in some cases watch tv shows. An innovative solution to complete most of these tasks is by using a notebook computer. These computer systems are portable ones, small, robust and transportable.
