Future Telecommunications: Information Applications, Services and Infrastructure
Robert K. Heldman
Written by a top-level executive at US West - a leading Regional Bell Operating Company - this book explores the full range of information applications that exist now, how they will change in the 90's, and what narrowband, wideband, and broadband services and products will be needed. It also examines what must be done to the ageing telecommunications infrastructure in America to allow these products and services to become a reality. This book includes an assessment of today's technology as a basis for future information networks, products, and services; a "multimillion dollar analysis" of 20 major industries detailing their telecommunications information needs in terms of specific applications; a complete listing of all services that will be needed over the next 15 years; a description of private and public internetworking; three new products that will be needed by the year 2000 as the key switching/service nodes of the forthcoming information infrastructure; visions of the future from top-level executives at US West, AT&T, Siemens, Northern Telecom, and other suppliers; and more.
