KT’s telecommunications feeds in the telecommunications hall contain the history of telecommunications from the late 19th century to smartphones. The oldest feed is the phones used in the late 1800s. Deokyul-style is the name of the Teleon English pronunciation in Chinese.
Intentions are attracted by the telephones of the times, exchanges, public telephones, and faxes, and text communication prints and beeps. This is because KT’s current history of Korea’s ICT power generation history can be checked in one place.
■ Report on Korea Telecommunications History… Exhibition of registered cultural property
The KT Communications Feed Museum is eye-catching in the 1920s, a wall-shaped phone phone used in the 1920s, the first dial-type telephone in 1935, and the telegraph telegraph using the MOOS code. Mechanical phones before the emergence of automatic exchangers are likely to be seen in movies dealing with modern times.
In the history of Korean telecommunications, the exchanging facility, which is meaningful, was also exhibited ‘TDX-1’. This is the world’s 10th, which was commercialized in 1986 after developing the electronic exchange TDX-1 in 1984. The development of the TDX exchanger played a major role in spreading the national telephone by designing and producing and producing and producing and producing and producing and producing exchange facilities that have depended on foreign countries.
The public telephone, which was used since 120 years ago, was a favorite product for the common people before the spread. Since the independence in 1962, the telephone was first installed among the unmanned arts, and the first DDD public telephone was developed in 1982 as a domestic technology.
The telecommunications museum is also stored by the times. Since 1966, the number of subscribers has increased, and the phone book has begun to issue. At that time, KT has distributed a phone book for free for one copy a year so that it can easily find the number. The thick telephone book was placed in front of the home or a public phone.
The whole body, which began as a Moss code, was installed in the telegraph station, the post office, and used as a telegram. The print system was able to print a message on paper with typewriters, making it an opportunity to improve the speed of written communication at the time.
After connecting one-to-one through the print system, it is possible to send and receive the contents while using the telex. In the recent filming of Lee Jung-jae’s film Hunt, the printing telegraphs stored at KT Communications Museum were also used.
You can also see the history of mobile communication. In 1982, only 235 beepers increased to 15.19 million in 1997. Pippi’s popularization also accelerated the spread of public telephones.
Since then, the era of mobile telephone has opened due to the commercialization of CDMA technology. After 2G communication, the PCS era, which transmits text messages to digital data, has been opened, and it is now in the age of smartphone.
Lee In-hak, the director of the Information and Communications Research Institute, who was in charge of the commentary of the telecommunications feed center, said, The telecommunications feeds that KT states in Wonju are very high in historical value because they can see the times of the times and the people’s lives of the people. As it is the main house of communication history in Korea, I hope to be a leading role in the future ICT history.
■ KT General Korea Telecommunication Corporation Era
Although KT’s predecessor is now the predecessor of KT, KT’s departure from KT was originated from Korea Telecommunications Corporation (hereinafter referred to as Korea Telecom), which was launched in December 1981. Although it was in the form of institutions under the government, it was extended from construction to privatization to respond flexibly to the management environment and technology change.
The Korea Telecom is said to have resolved telephone commercial and economic growth steps in landline telephone services. In 1987, the TDX-1 itself was developed in 1987 to realize the era of 1 household.
Prior to the first-generation cell phone compared to the brick, the company opened the era of mobile communication in 1982 with a beeper (wireless port). Since then, Korea Mobile Telecom (now SK Telecom) has been established and a new history has begun.
The Korea Telecom obtained the PCS business rights in 1996 and founded the Korea Telecommunications Pretel (KTF). KTF exceeded 1 million subscribers in April 1998, six months after the launch of the service in October 1997, and the Korea Telecom acquired Hansol M.com in 2000 and launched KTF.
In the 1990s, he was the main driver of the high-speed Internet era. At the time, the ADSL service was introduced during the IMF period, and the cornerstone of the current Internet powerhouse was laid. Earlier, in 1995 and 1996, he launched Mugunghwa Satellite No. 1 and 2, and was named in a commercial satellite country.
■ privatization kt 20 years… Securing national ICT competitiveness
In the 2000s, the Korean telecommunications changed its name to KT in the 2000s and took its first step in privatization. At the time of the IMF, KT was listed on the New York Stock Market by issuing overseas stock deposits.
KT, which was officially privatized on August 20, 2002, when the World Cup was left, quickly entered the wired and wireless infrastructure. By commercializing the 13Mbps VDSL for the first time in Korea, it led 10 million domestic high-speed Internet subscribers and exceeded the world’s first 5 million subscribers in January 2003.
Unprecedented Internet penetration and service speeds in the world have blossomed in Korea’s IT industry ecosystem. Currently, e-commerce, digital content, and online games are available on this period. At that time, the number of venture companies increased more than five times since the internet supply in 2001, from 2,42 in 1998.
The high-speed Internet has triggered the rapid growth of the video content market by enabling IPTV services based on optical cable (FTTH) in 2007. In 2002, Satellite Broadcasting Service Sky Life was launched. The strange lawyer Woo Young-woo is also based on this.
KT also took the lead in expanding global telecommunications and exchanges between North and South Korea.
Huh Kun, head of the KT Advertising Team, explained, In 2002, the opening of the Asia-Pacific Understanding Cable has met the demand for data communication in the Asia-Pacific region..
He also said, We connected KT Munsan Branch and North Korea’s Kaesong Telephone Bureau, and established KT branches in the Kaesong Industrial Complex. I added it.
In 2015, the company introduced the iPhone for the first time in Korea. This led to the world’s first 5G communication commercialization.
Based on this history, KT is preparing a new growth strategy with a digital platform company (DIGICO). In the first half of this year, the company recorded a portfolio of new growth projects.
