summary
Telecommunications History & Policy into the 21st Century provides a succinct overview of the telecommunications environment and the factors that have shaped this industry from its inception through 2009. As a former executive with AT&T, Mr. Fulle shares his professional knowledge of an industry that is evolving at an increasing rate. This book provides a valuable examination of the evolution and complexity of the telecommunications industry, not only from its technological advances, but through actual business case studies and analysis of the four components of industry change: technology, regulatory and legal policy, market forces and security. Each chapter provides a brief summary of key concepts and a list of study questions to invoke discussion and review. While the events of the past have been significant and important, the best is yet to come!
