An Information Technology Manager's Guide to Campus Phone Operations.
Sherron, Gene T.
Written for the information technology manager who is about to enter the telephone communications system business, this paper takes a "primer" approach, outlining the major issues in telecommunications which face all higher education campuses today. An introduction which places the issues into perspective is followed by a quick look at the history of deregulation and the effects of divestiture. The basic components of the telephone business are then described, i.e., switch options, financing considerations, management systems, telephones, Integral Services Digital Network (ISDN), and wiring. Finally, some of the management issues of a telecommunications organization are considered. Information is drawn from publications listed in the 34-item bibliography, experiences at Florida State University, and a 1988 survey of 22 universities. (DB)
