Telecommunications History & Policy into the 21st Century

by Ronald G. Fulle

  • Description
  • Reviews
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!

Professor Ron Fulle is a graduate of the State University of New York at Oswego where he received a BS in Mathematics, and he holds a MS in Telecommunications from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has over twenty-five years of industry experience and is currently teaching at Rochester Institute of Technology in the Telecommunications Engineering Technology program.
"This book addresses an interesting and important topic and is well designed as either a textbook for a telecommunications policy course or a book for a general reader who wants grounding in the last 25 years of the telecommunications industry and policy. The study questions at the end of the chapters are particularly good! -" Gregg Sayre, Associate General Counsel, Eastern Region, Frontier Communications
"Professor Fulle allowed me to use a pre-publication manuscript of this book for a 2009 Telecom Policy class that I taught. Students found the book to be easy to understand and forthright. They liked the book, learned from it and rated it highly. -" Gidon Lissai, Software Engineer, Lenel Systems International Inc. and Adjunct Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology
