Telecommunications in Europe by Eli M Noam( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 456 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

Public television in America( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 239 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

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

19 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 190 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."--book jacket

The new investment theory of real options and its implication for telecommunications economics by James H Alleman( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 157 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
