Regional Interests and Global Issues: The Challenge of Telecommunications Integration for the Pacific. Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the Pacific Telecommunications Council (14th, Honolulu, Hawaii, January 12-15, 1992).
Lofstrom, Mark D., Ed.; Wedemeyer, Dan J., Ed.
This volume includes the papers presented at the 1992 conference of the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC), which focused on challenges of regional telecommunications integration. The more than 150 papers in this collection represent a wide range of interests, locales, and perspectives. Satellites were of special interest to discussions about regional integration of telecommunications in the Pacific, and many of the papers focus on the world's major communications satellite providers, innovative applications for satellite services, technical explanations of satellite capabilities, and proposals for new satellite networks. Attention is also directed toward mobile communications, which present numerous opportunities for augmenting many nations' limited telecommunications infrastructures and meeting new demands throughout the Pacific region. Policy considerations, the implications of regulatory frameworks, information networks and systems, observations on strategic alliances, and insights on investment and financing were also highlighted. Papers are indexed by paper number, subject, country, and author. Most provide their own abstracts and bibliographies. Thirty papers that arrived too late to be included in the bound proceedings volume have been appended to it. (DB)
