Explain what a communications system is and its components.

A communications system is a collection of individual telecommunications networks systems, relay stations, tributary stations, and terminal equipment usually capable of interconnection and interoperation to form an integrated whole. The components of a communications system serve a common purpose, are technically compatible, use common procedures, respond to controls, and operate in union.

What is the definition of telecommunications and its applications?

Telecommunications is a method of communication (e.g., for sports broadcasting, mass media, journalism, etc.).

Define communication and its fundamental purpose.

Communication is the act of conveying intended meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and semiotic rules.

What is an optical communication system and its key equipment?

An optical communication system is any form of telecommunication that uses light as the transmission medium. Equipment consists of a transmitter, which encodes a message into an optical signal, a communication channel, which carries the signal to its destination, and a receiver, which receives the signal.
