Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The telephone was the first form of telecommunication.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given answer is false because the telegraph was actually the first form of telecommunication, not the telephone. The telegraph, invented by Samuel Morse in the early 19th century, allowed messages to be transmitted over long distances using a series of electrical signals. The telephone, on the other hand, was invented by Alexander Graham Bell in 1876 and allowed for voice communication. While the telephone revolutionized communication, it was not the first form of telecommunication.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which one of these is NOT an early form of telecommunications?

    • A.

      Smoke signals

    • B.

      Drums

    • C.

      Flags

    • D.

      All of the above were early forms of telecommunications

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above were early forms of telecommunications
    Explanation
    Smoke signals, drums, and flags were all early forms of telecommunications used by various cultures throughout history. Smoke signals were used to send messages over long distances by creating patterns in the smoke. Drums were used to transmit messages through rhythmic beats, which could be understood by those familiar with the code. Flags were used to visually communicate messages over long distances, often in military or naval contexts. Therefore, all of the options listed in the question were indeed early forms of telecommunications.

    VOIP technologies deliver voice communications over IP networks. IP stands for Internet Protocol, which is the standard protocol used for transmitting data over the internet. VOIP converts voice signals into digital packets and sends them over IP networks, allowing for voice communication to be transmitted over the internet. This technology has become increasingly popular as it offers cost-effective and flexible communication solutions.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following are benefits of VOIP?

    • A.

      Reduction in communication cost

    • B.

      Reduction in infrastructure costs

    • C.

      Ability to transmit multiple phone calls over the same band width connection

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) offers several benefits. Firstly, it allows for a reduction in communication costs as it uses the internet to transmit voice data, eliminating the need for traditional phone lines. Secondly, it reduces infrastructure costs as it requires less equipment compared to traditional phone systems. Lastly, VOIP has the ability to transmit multiple phone calls over the same bandwidth connection, making it efficient and cost-effective. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above".

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following are NOT potential security threats associated with VIOP telephone systems?

    • A.

      Denial of service attacks

    • B.

      Break into home security systems

    • C.

      Break into voice mailboxes

    • D.

      Harvest customer data

    Correct Answer
    B. Break into home security systems
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "break into home security systems." This is not a potential security threat associated with VOIP telephone systems because home security systems and VOIP telephone systems operate on separate networks and have different security protocols. While denial of service attacks, break into voice mailboxes, and harvesting customer data are potential security threats for VOIP telephone systems, breaking into home security systems is not directly related to VOIP technology.
