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
