The Global Telecommunications System

GLOBAL THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM What is GTS? The worldwide system for the collection, transfer, and distribution of meteorological data as rapidly as possible to all potential users. What does it do? The GTS is a dedicated network of terrestrial and satellite telecommunication links that transmit meteorological data, connecting together field stations and meteorological services around the world. This secured communication network enables real-time exchange of information, critical for forecasting and warning of hydrometeorological hazards. In addition to a worldwide satellite network, the GTS also consists of three main terrestrial networks: The Main Telecommunication Network (MTN), which links together the World Meteorological Centres in Melbourne, Moscow, and Washington. The Regional Meteorological Telecommunication Networks (RMTNS), with 15 hubs spanning four continents. The National Meteorological Telecommunication Networks (NMTNS), which collect and distribute meteorological information at a national level. What are the usage of GTS? Satellite-based data collection and/or data distribution systems are also integrated in the GTS as an essential element of the global, regional and national levels of the GTS. Countries like Argentina, Canada, China, France, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Thailand and the USA, have implemented satellite-based multi-point telecommunication systems for their national MTN. Marine data are also collected through the International Maritime Mobile Service and through INMARSAT. Advantages of GTS in E-Business Reduced Operational Costs Internet and telecommunication system set aside the additional costs. Video conferencing, email, automated machines, save a great deal of money and time. Efficient Customer Service Improve customer service. Online payment systems improve the process of cash transactions and reduce the costs incurred.

In e-business, there is a wider audience to market their company and acquire new clients. A website allows increased sales and reduced advertising costs as compared to the use of traditional advertising avenues. The Mobile Network Through 2017 Mobile data traffic will reach the following milestones within the next five years. Monthly global mobile data traffiC will surpass 10 exabytes in 2017. The number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the world's population in 2013. The average mobile connection speed will surpass 1 Mbps in 2014. Monthly mobile tablet traffic will surpass 1 exabyte per month in 2017. Due to increased usage on smartphones, handsets will exceed 50 percent of mobile data traffic in 2013. Tablets will exceed 10 percent of global mobile data traffic in 2015. Published by: Designed by : Info Graphic INDUS NET TECHNOLOGIES DESIGN TEAMU
