Discusses typical regulatory rules and the legal and administrative framework for regulation, and looks at regulatory strategies, market structures and approaches to price control. The book includes a number of case studies which show how regulators engage with such topical issues as interconnection and loop unbundling, and also features technical coverage of both numbering and number portability. Finally, it looks at new products and services such as virtual network operators, intelligent networks, radio spectrum and next generation networks, and considers the impact these might have on the future of regulation.

Subscriber Loop Signaling and Transmission Handbook Analog Telecommunications Handbook Series Whitham D. Reeve, Series Editor This practical telecommunications handbook brings you the latest techniques, requirements, and standards for sending voice, data, and call setup and takedown signals between a system user and a public or private network. Emphasizing the technical and operational aspects of the subscriber loop in an analog environment, you'll learn what the loop does, how to connect it, and how to design it for maximum reliability. This handbook combines functional information based on field experience with formal telecommunication industry standards and practices, providing you with the most current techniques for successfully implementing and using a telecommunication system. Among its many features, the book covers important topics such as: Transmission rules and design techniques Loop termination and protection methods Conditioning methods for reducing the negative effects of impairments Design tools for obtaining transmission requirements Fundamentals of pair gain devices as well as providing a large number of up-to-date and available references - along with information on how to obtain them. About the Series The Telecommunications Handbook Series consists of handy references to the practical information used by technical specialists within the telecommunications industry. These books have been specifically designed to provide technical practitioners, in the three basic fields of the telecommunications industry-inside plant, outside plant, and administration and regulatory-with practical day-to-day engineering and technical information on telecommunications systems.

The business of telecommunications is currently undergoing a period of change driven by changes in regulation, increasing demands for services and the development of new access technologies. The market structure of telecommunications is evolving rapidly as new players entering the market and existing players strive to complete in an increasingly volatile market. Moreover the advent of new data services is placing greater demands on the network as operators strive to offer new broadband services. Underpinning much of this change is the access technology itself, both in the transitional form of copper twisted pairs, but increasing through the use of new fibre, radio and copper systems. Indeed the dominant cost of most telecommunication network is the access network itself and typically can demand up to 80% of the total investment required. The book presents an overview of the access network and discusses the technologies that are available. It begins with an introductory chapter defining terms and technologies and goes on to discuss each technology in turn, not only from a technology viewpoint but with a view on how it might be best deployed. Chapters are also included on planning systems and network management, a key aspect of the technology.

This new book explains how telecommunications networks work. It uses straightforward language supported by copious block - schematic diagrams so that non-engineers and engineers alike can learn about the principles of fixed and mobile telecommunications networks carrying voice and data. The book covers all aspects of today's networks, including how they are planned, formed and operated, plus next generation networks and how they will be implemented. After an introductory chapter on telephony, the book briefly describes all of today's networks - PSTN, mobile, cable television, the Internet, etc. - and considers how they interconnect. Individual chapters then consider the principles, technologies and network structures relating to transmission, circuit switching, signalling and control, data (including voice-over-IP) networks, and mobile networks. The important subject of numbering and addressing for telephony and IP is then covered. The book concludes with a chapter designed to pull everything together, considering architecture, quality of service and performance, operations, network evolution and next generation networks.
