In a series of essays, this book analyzes key issues that have affected the telecommunications business in the past two decades and will affect it in the approach to the 21st century. It covers such topics as: how the global network of networks poses problems for policy makers; the spread of privatization and the growth of competition; how, as a result of new technology, the telephone is becoming just a niche application in the use of communications and the information highway; the fusion of the telecoms, computer, information and entertainment industries and the strategies being pursued by the major players to meet the challenges of convergence; and the global supremacy among Europe, the United States and Japan. The book includes an A-Z of terms used in telecommunications, and an appendix with facts and figures on the growth of telcommunications, international markets, subsector comparisons and key players.
