Telecommunications Specialists or short Telecom Specialists design voice and data communication systems, supervise installation of these systems, and provide maintenance and service after installation. Specializations include voice transmission, cellular capabilities, data communication, cable-to-modem communication, and satellite communication capabilities.

NGOs require Telecom Specialists to install and maintain communication infrastructure in remote locations. The demand for Internet connectivity and other communication services in remote locations for health services, education, and business development is growing. NGOs are often the first to serve these remote areas and the first to require connectivity in disaster areas.
