History of Electrical Communication Devices

  • The Telegraph

    The Telegraph
    The Telegraph was delveloped during this time span. In 1844, the first message was sent from the telegraph from D.C. to Baltimore. This was the first form of long distance communication. This helped create connections bewteen different communities.
  • Transatlantic Telegraph Cable

    Transatlantic Telegraph Cable
    The first time they communicated was August 16, 1858, reducing the communication time between North America and Europe from ten days, the time it took to deliver a message by ship, to a matter of a few minutes. This helped communication expand to international communications. This also helped many government officials communicated to Europe faster.
  • The Telephone

    The Telephone
    The first successful telephone transmission of clear speech using a liquid transmitter when Bell spoke into his device, "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you." and Watson heard each word distinctly. This was a sign of advancement in communications and made it much more faster.
  • Photophone

    The photophone (aka radiophone) is a telecommunications device which allowed for the transmission of speech on a beam of light. It was invented by Alexander Graham Bell and his assistant Charles Sumner Tainter on February 19, 1880, at Bell's laboratory at 1325 L Street in Washington, D.C. This was teh first time someone used sound and light at the same time to communicate. This helped commnication become faster in small communities.
  • Wireless Telegraphy

    Wireless Telegraphy
    Wireless telegraphy came to mean Morse code transmitted by radio waves. By 1910 communication by Hertzian waves was universally referred to as "radio", and the term wireless telegraphy has been largely replaced by the more modern term "radiotelegraphy". The transmission of speeh began to displace wireless telegraphy by the 1920s for many broadcasting. related things. This helped the government with communication with other countries.
  • Transcontinental Telephone

    Transcontinental Telephone
    So the system opened the line with great fanfare and celebrations in San Francisco and New York. This was the first time people could talk to soemone else who was far away with out a long wire connected to the actual device. The use of cable wires made it simpler. quicker communication nationally.
  • Videophone

    A videophone is a telephone with a video display and audio for communication between people in real-time. Videophone service provided the first form of videotelephony, later to be followed by videoconferencing, webcams, and finally high-definition telepresence. This was the first version of talking face-to-fae with out being together. This helped mostly deaf people who chuld not use the regular phone.
  • Transatlantic Telephone Cable

    Transatlantic Telephone Cable
    Similar to the Transatlantic telegraph cable, this was now using the telephone instead of the telegraph. It was laid between Gallanach Bay, near Oban, Scotland and Clarenville, Newfoundland between 1955 and 1956 by the cable ship Monarch. It carried 36 telephone channels at first and by the end there was 48, making room for many calls to go through.
  • Pager

    The pager was made to alert the person. This help create a system of alerts to help us be more aware and communicate more effectively. It was a wireless telecommunications device that receives and displays numeric and/or receives and announces voice messages. One-way pagers would only receive messages, while response pagers and two-way pagers would also acknowledge, reply to, and originate messages using an internal transmitter.
  • Cellular Phone

    There was
  • Smartphone

    The first smart phone was made 1993 and distributed/sold in 1994. It was made by IBM and BellSouth. It was named “Simon”. It had a touch screen that was capable of accessing email and sending faxes. The phone made daily activities easier and had society working for more advanced technology.
