Communication can be one of the most problematic aspects of any relationship, but this is no new revelation. For centuries, couples have quarrelled and quipped over undelivered (or in fact, unsent) messages, and the lack of communication in their relationships. The question is; could a pager have saved their nuptials? Had pagers been around in the days of these high profile couples of the past, perhaps their relationships might not have met such disastrous ends.
In today's fast-paced and hi-tech world of the Internet, instant messaging and every other possible form of digital communication, it's easy to forget that, in the grand scheme of things, it was not so long ago that communications strategies were an entirely different kettle of fish (or pile of wood as the case may have been).
In U.S. hospitals, resident doctors are frequently on call for more than 80 hours a week, and in the long-running and award winning medical drama, ER, we get a sense of this burden and strain. The hospital asks a lot of the characters in the Emergency Room, with the County General paging system constantly interrupting the lives of its staff and their pager tones and ruining their day.
Did you ever suspect that something as mundane as a park bench can be a key instrument in the communications strategy of secret agents and foreign operatives? Next time you sit down to feed the pigeons, check for a suspicious chalk mark or fresh graffiti in the wood. It could mean a handoff of information is happening nearby.
The communications strategies of secret agencies are in operation all around us. Huge amounts of top-level boffin brainpower are put into the creating and the cracking of codes and audio surveillance, but much of what they do is already known to us. Leonardo da Vinci practised cryptology in his writing to prevent prying eyes from understanding his diaries, and who can forget the famous victory of Enigma machine? The techniques of spies past and present can be found represented in our literature, history, cinema and even code-breaking word puzzles. How much of this secretive spycraft do you recognise?
In action-packed television series and big screen films such as 24, James Bond and Mission Impossible, federal agents are constantly relying on communications strategies to get them through their missions unscathed. We take a look at three of the best federal and secret service agents television has ever seen.

From the telegram to the home telephone to the internet to cell phones, humans have always been searching out and inventing new and easier ways to communicate with each other. Cell phones were pretty convenient when they first arrived, but now-a-days you don't even have to make a call to get the message you want out to anyone and everyone.

A VPN is a private computer network that is based in an overlay on top of an existing network and uses a public network such as the internet to create a private, secure communication scope or to connect remote sites or users together. It serves many purpose such as providing secure extension of a private network into internet (which is usually insecure and prone to attack), using a virtual connection instead of a real connection such as a leased line.
