Lofstrom, Mark D., Ed.
The purpose of this report is to facilitate decision making concerning attendance at the many concurrent sessions of the 1992 conference of the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC). The report augments the collection of full length papers submitted in time for publication in the PTC '92 Proceedings by providing summaries for concurrent sessions. The conference focused on challenges of regional integration of telecommunications with a special interest in communications satellites. 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 offer opportunities to augment many nations' limited telecommunications infrastructures and to meet 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 are other concerns highlighted at PTC 1992. Summaries are indexed by subject, country, and author. (DB)
