As we continue to witness global macroeconomic downturn in many parts of the world, an evolution of some sorts is slowly happening in telecommunications, much as the same witnessed prior to the Dot-com era. There has been a huge paradigm shift in the Data Communication and Networking (DCN) technology from an orderly, predictable, moderate but-steady growth industry to a chaotic marketplace of disruptive technologies, rapidly changing regulations, complex mergers and acquisitions, and inorganic growth.

Recent Advances in Broadband Integrated Network Operations and Services Management covers the principles of both wired and wireless communications of voice, data, images, and video and the impact of their business values on the organizations in which they are used. This reference book includes theoretical and practical works, relevant case studies, topical surveys, and research articles that address problems faced by telecommunication service providers, equipment manufacturers, enterprises, and policy makers in the areas of data communications and networking.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adoption and diffusion of networking technologies
  • Business applications of telecommunications
  • Business implications of public WWANs and WLANs deployment
  • Business re-engineering issues associated with networking
  • Cross-border network-based information systems
  • Designing, Deploying, and Using Networked Systems in Specialized Sectors
  • Effects of legislation and regulation on telecommunications
  • Emerging networking trends
