    communication (noun) + technology (ok)

    This is a noun used to modify another noun.
    Means, one kind of communication technique.

    communications (plural noun) + technology (ok)
    Means, more than one communication technique.

    communicational (adjective) + technology (ok, but rare)

    Means, X technology is used for communicating. It's communicational, like educational is to educational software.

    :D
