This ability to maximize and optimize the flow of information, the man has used has always been tools. The first known means of communication of the history were clay tablets, wedge fonts and glyphs here around 3000 BC. About 150 BC, the first communications network was developed with the smoke Telegraph Network in the Roman Empire.

In parallel, the Telegraph Network developed in the 18th century as another means of communication.
The optical Telegraph Network rapidly quickly spread throughout Europe. This system evolved, and in 1833 built the first electromagnetic needle Telegraph in Gottingen. 1837 reported the American Samuel Morse the first Telegraph apparatus to the patent. A few years later the Morse code was developed about 40 years later by the first phone with real time communication to be replaced. In 1897, the first wireless phone was invented, which worked by means of Herz’scher radio waves. The lives of people through a variety of inventions changed rapidly in the 19th and 20th centuries.
