Telecommunications in Europe by Eli M Noam( )

19 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Telecommunications have become the information highways of an increasingly service-based economy. With the acceleration of changes in technology and applications, they have begun to transform the traditional system of monopoly and its PTT administrations, giant institutions that have received little academic attention. This book, like its companion volume, Television in Europe, deals with the rise and decline of powerful monopolies in the telecommunications field, and dramatic changes that began to take place in the late 1980s. This book is the first comprehensive attempt to address the complicated economic and policy issues of European telecommunications. It describes the historical context in which national state-owned telecommunications monopolies emerged throughout Europe, explores the dynamics of change, and analyzes the forces which continue to transform the traditional PTT system. The discussion covers equipment supply, emerging value-added networks, and new telecommunications-related services within the framework of a detailed country-by-country analysis. It also explores over-arching issues which present special dilemmas for a Europe embarked on economic unification. This highly accessible and comprehensive study will be of interest to students and professionals in the areas of communications, economics, regulatory law, telecommunications engineering, media, and political science
Interconnecting the network of networks by Eli M Noam( )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes the transformation of telecommunications from national network monopolies to a new system, the network of networks, and the glue that holds it together, interconnection." "Taking a broad, multidisciplinary perspective, Eli Noam discusses the importance and history of interconnection policy, as well as recent policy reforms both within the United States and around the globe. Other important topics he discusses include interconnection prices, the unbundling of interconnection, and the technology of interconnection. He concludes with an examination of social and policy issues, including the free flow of content, universal service and privacy protection, and the future of telecommunications."--Jacket
The new investment theory of real options and its implication for telecommunications economics by James H Alleman( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The issue of costing and pricing in the telecommunications industry has been hotly debated for the last twenty years and we are still wrestling over the cost of the local exchange for access by interexchange and competitive local exchange carriers, as well as for universal service funding. With the advent of competition, the historical costing schemes had to change. Federal regulators wanted to ensure that monopoly rates did not subsidize competitive offerings. As a result, various costing methodologies were devised to allocate costs among the dominant carriers' services. The issue of costs can be summarized as two-fold: the quantitative determination of the level of costs and the proper attribution of those costs. Both are fraught with questions. The amount of costs, for instance, can vary from book costs to marginal costs. The attribution of costs can vary from those that are directly attributable to those that are joint and common. Hence, the need for costing theories and models. The industry is constantly in search of theories and models that more accurately reflect the underlying costs of service. It is in this light that the papers have been compiled for The New Investment Theory of Real Options in Telecommunications. Real options theory attempts to consider management's flexibility in valuation analysis and corrects the deficiencies of the traditional discounted present-value and decision tree analyses. This book sets forth an introduction and overview of the subject, and then provides the reader with a primer on real options. The volume highlights the controversies that surround the application of real options in the telecommunications industry; however, the editors have effectively separated the issues of application from those of interpretation

Peer-to-peer video : the economics, policy, and culture of today's new mass medium by Eli M Noam( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peer-to-Peer is a communication structure in which individuals interact directly, without going through a centralized system. The implications of this architecture go far beyond the technological realm; the ability of individuals to share digital content files, including audio and video material, in real time, facilitates communication and, at a deeper cultural level, promotes community without hierarchy or strict control. Peer-to-Peer Video is the first book to apply economic principles to analyze and understand the P2P phenomenon, considering such topics as "consumer demand and the commons" and "file sharing and the copyright crisis." This is a commentary on a slice of popular culture that will interest scholars and students, policymakers, media industry professionals, and general readers alike."--Jacket

"Media Ownership and Concentration in America will be essential reading and a trove of information for scholars and students in media, telecommunications, IT, economics, and the history of business, as well as media industry professionals, business researchers, and policy makers around the world. Critics and defenders of media alike will find much that confirms and refutes their worldview."--Jacket

Broadband networks, smart grids and climate change by Eli M Noam( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In smart grids the formerly separated worlds of energy and telecommunication converge to an interactive and automated energy supply system. Driven by social, legal, and economic pressures, energy systems around the globe are updated with information and communication technology. These investments aim at enhancing energy efficiency, securing affordable energy supply, and mitigate climate change. In Broadband Networks, Smart Grids and Climate Change, renowned scholars and managers from the fields of energy and telecommunication address key questions related to technological, strategic, and regulatory issues revealing consequences and opportunities for businesses evolving with smart grids. "IT has transformed many industries-now it is energy's turn! This important book will guide readers through 'smart grids, ' the interconnection of broadband and energy systems and its implications: more efficient, 'greener' and more responsive to consumers/producers."Leonard Waverman, Dean of the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary and Fellow of the London Business School "The energy supply system will change dramatically in the years to come, and information and communication technologies will play a pivotal role in this transition. If you wish to understand in-depth how policy, regulation and businesses can leverage and harness this transition for sustainable economic growth this book offers an excellent starting point."Dr. Ingo Vogelsang, Professor of Economics, Boston University "A persuasive linking of three major policy inquiries through the advanced technologies for each. Celebration of technology is fine, but perspective about it is still better. Makes for a timely course-all in one collection." Douglas N. Jones, Professor (emeritus) of Regulatory Economics, The John Glenn School of Public Affairs and Director (emeritus), The National Regulatory Research Institute, The Ohio State University. "To developed countries smart grids offer an enormous opportunity to decarbonize their energy supply systems. But also for emerging countries the synergies between information and communication technologies and the energy system establish opportunities for economic growth without wasting resources and environmental degradation. For both initial situations this book offers valuable insights for scholars, policy makers and practitioners."Dr. Joachim von Braun, Director of the Center for Development Research (ZEF Bonn) and Professor of Economics and Technological Change, University of Bonn

Telecommunications in the Pacific Basin : an evolutionary approach( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although telecommunications are in a state of constant change throughout the world, nowhere have the transformations advanced further, faster and in more interesting ways than in the Pacific Basin. This change is closely linked to the more general progress of the electronic sector in the region which has moved forward at an incredible pace as well as the region's important need for telecommunications services based on its geographic distance from the rest of the industrialized world." "Telecommunications in the Pacific Basin emphasizes the economic, regulatory, and social change caused by technological evolution, marketplace developments and institutional reorganization. The contributors discuss the evolution of telecommunication networks, compare deregulation policies in different countries, and analyze public and private cooperation in international informatics. Individual articles focus on the telecommunications systems in numerous countries including Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and the Philippines, as well as the United States." "This comprehensive and essential analysis evolves around a multi-stage evolutionary model of public telecommunications networks. It will be of interest to students and professionals in the areas of communications, economics, regulatory law, telecommunications engineering, media, and political science."--Jacket

7 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Europe, television began in a public format and public broadcasting defined the medium. But in America, public television was created to fill the programming void left by commercial TV, and tolerated as a belated addition rather than as a co-equal. Education, by default, was served by public television, always the weaker part of the broadcast system in terms of resources and audience. Money was only part of the problem. The other was organization and vision. Today, public television is again at a major crossroad. Technologically, digitalization, multicasting, and the Internet provide a new challenge. Institutionally, the structure of the entire system is under scrutiny. And finally, its long-term funding mechanism is less certain than ever." "The publication is part of an international and comparative effort involving several countries, initiated by the Bertelsmann Foundation as part of its "Communications 2000" initiative."--Jacket
