Broken Promises is the third book in a trilogy spanning 18 years. Bruce Kushnick, author, senior telecom analyst and industry insider, lays out, in all of the gory details, how America paid over $400 billion to be the first fully fiber optic-based nation yet ended up 27th in the world for high-speed Internet (40th in upload speeds). But this is only a part of this story. With over four million people filing with the FCC to 'Free the Net', one thing is abundantly clear -- customers know something is terribly wrong. Every time you pay your bills you notice that the price of your services keeps going up, you don't have a serious choice for Internet (ISP), broadband or cable service, much less competitors fighting for your business, or maybe you can't even get very fast broadband service. Worse, over the last few years, America's ISPs and cable companies have been rated "the most hated companies in America". While Net Neutrality concerns (detailed in Broken Promises) are important, the actions are only a first step and will most likely be tied up in court for the next few years. More importantly, it does not resolve most of the customer issues and there is nothing else on the horizon that will fix what's broken. Broken Promises documents the massive overcharging and failure to properly upgrade the networks, the deceptive billing practices, the harms caused from a lack of competition, the gaming and manipulating of the regulatory system, from the states to the FCC, and exposes the companies' primary strategy: How much can we get away with? There has been little, if any, regard for the customers they serve.--From http://newnetworks.com/bookbrokenpromises/ --(viewed on June 12, 2015).

Career- and productivity-enhancing training... an investment that will be repaid many times over. Chapter List Telecom 101 is composed of three parts: Fundamentals of Telecommunications, Telecommunications Technologies, and the IP Telecommunications Network. PART I FUNDAMENTALS OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS 1 INTRODUCTION 2 FUNDAMENTALS OF TELEPHONY 3 SWITCHING 4 THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY We begin with the fundamentals of telephony and the telephone network – the basis for understanding everything else. First is the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN): loops and trunks, circuit-switching, analog, the voiceband and Plain Ordinary Telephone Service (POTS). Plus, new for the fourth edition: Voice over IP (VoIP) is now part of the fundamentals. Next is switching, starting with traditional telephone switches: Centrex, PBX and PBX trunks, and how that relates to the newer ideas of softswitches, Hosted PBX and SIP trunking. This part is completed with a chapter on the telecommunications business: Local Exchange Carriers and Inter-Exchange Carriers, ILECs and CLECs, the main players and how carriers interconnect. PART II TELECOMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES 5 DIGITAL 6 TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS 7 THE NETWORK CLOUD AND SERVICE PROVISIONING 8 FIBER OPTICS 9 DSL AND CABLE MODEMS: LAST MILE ON COPPER 10 WIRELESS The second part is devoted to telecommunications technologies: the actual methods used to implement circuits and services. We begin with digital: what digital is, how voice and video are digitized, and how digitized information is actually transmitted. The next chapter is transmission systems: the high-capacity systems developed to carry many users’ traffic. This starts with the installed base of channelized systems, the hierarchy of DS0, DS1 and DS3 rates and an overview of T1, T3, SONET and ISDN. Then our attention turns to the new generation packetized systems, introducing the concepts of overbooking and bandwidth on demand instead of channels, how this is implemented with frames and packets, coexistence and transition from channels to packets. Then we understand the “Network Cloud”, how services are actually implemented, the three basic types of services and the equipment used for each. Completing this part are chapters on the technologies used to implement the network: Fiber Optics, including fundamentals of fiber, wave-division multiplexing, the network core, Metropolitan Area Networks, Passive Optical Networks and fiber to the premise. Last Mile on Copper: DSL and Cable Modems, including fundamentals of modems, DSLAMs, VDSL, broadband and cable modems. Wireless, concentrating on mobile communications: cellular and mobility concepts, the technologies TDMA, CDMA and OFDM, the generations from 1G to 4G, and the systems GSM, UMTS, 1X and LTE. This chapter is completed with WiFi and satellite. PART III THE IP PACKET-SWITCHED TELECOM NETWORK (IP-PSTN) 11 "DATA" COMMUNICATIONS CONCEPTS 12 CODING, FRAMES AND PACKETS 13 THE OSI LAYERS AND PROTOCOL STACKS 14 ETHERNET, LANS AND VLANS 15 IP NETWORKS, ROUTERS AND ADDRESSES 16 MPLS AND CARRIER NETWORKS 17 THE INTERNET 18 WRAPPING UP The third part of Telecom 101 is dedicated to the new-generation IP telecommunications network. We begin by understanding how convergence was achieved by treating voice and video like data – then accordingly, cover the fundamentals of what used to be called “data communications”: DTEs, DCEs, LANs and WANs and the crucial concepts of packets and frames. There are so many functions that need to be performed to implement phone calls, television, web browsing, email and everything else over the IP network, a structure is necessary to be able to identify and discuss separate issues separately. For this purpose, there is a chapter on the OSI Reference Model and its layers, identifying what the layers are, examples of protocols for each layer and how they work together in a protocol stack. Then we begin moving up the layers. The next chapter is on Ethernet, LANs and VLANs (Layer 2), including MAC addresses and MAC frames, LAN cables, Optical Ethernet, LAN switches and how VLANs are used to separate traffic. The next chapter is all about IP (Layer 3): how routers implement the network, routing tables, IP addresses, subnets, IPv4 address classes, static addresses, dynamic addresses and DHCP; public addresses, private addresses and NAT; and an overview of IP version 6. On a real-world telecom network, a traffic management system is required. This is implemented with a technique called in general virtual circuits, and in particular with MPLS. The next chapter in the book covers the fundamentals, briefly reviews legacy technologies X.25, Frame Relay and ATM, then focuses on MPLS and how it is used to implement VPNs, Class of Service, service integration and traffic aggregation. The last main chapter is on the Internet: its origins, what an ISP is and how an ISP connects to the rest of the Internet via transit and peering, the web, the Domain Name System, HTML and HTTP, SSL, MIME and base- 64 encoding for email, Internet telephony and Internet VPNs vs. business customer “MPLS service”. The final chapter is a summary and wrap-up, covering technology deployment from the top down, useful reference charts listing all of the technologies, standard network designs and ending with a look at The Future. APPENDICES Telecommunications technology is in constant change – and some technologies that used to be of prime importance are not so important today, and so have been moved from the main part of the book into appendices. The very last part of the book provides a comprehensive list decoding mainstream acronyms and abbreviations used in telecom.

What you need to know to survive, long term. Interests between broadcasters and telecom people are blurring. Technical operations and design engineers in one field are increasingly required to deal with practices and techniques in the other. The problem is expectations and terminology differences aren't recognized until it's too late. Take "Quality of Service." The telecom people specify a percentage of the time that the service is guaranteed to be available. The down time may be very, very small. But, if it occurs during a high-priced commercial in the Super Bowl, it is very, very serious for the broadcaster. Practical IP and Telecom for Broadcast Engineering and Operations teaches the technology and how to structure it and make sure the finances work in your favor. Learn how to: * Define communications circuit, equipment, facilities and services used in broadcast engineering and operations. * Evaluate suppliers as well as their products and services. * Prepare technical specifications and requests for bids, proposals required in competitive procurement actions. * Conduct communications operational effectiveness and cost audits. * Prepare communications cost management strategies and plans. * Plan and execute capital projects. * Survive Long-Term Critical for engineers, technicians, and managers engaged in designing, installing, testing, and maintaining equipment and network services for program content, training material, or audio/video conferencing. Valuable knowledge for planning, design, integration and operation of communications equipment, facilities and services used in broadcast operations, training and conferencing applications. Fred Huffman is a systems engineer with Athens Olympic Broadcasting, the Host Broadcaster for the 2004 Games. He has more than 35 years experience in technical and management roles in broadcasting and telecommunications fields. This work is largely a reflection of that experience, captured in a way that introduces the reader to technical aspects of IP, ATM and classical telecom, along with business essentials such as contracts, tariffs, project planning, budgeting and long range planning.

This book explains how companies bill for telephone and data services, information services, and non-communication products and services. Billing and customer care systems convert the bits and bytes of digital information within a network into the money that will be received by the service provider. To accomplish this, these systems provide account activation and tracking, service feature selection, selection of billing rates for specific calls, invoice creation, payment entry and management of communication with the customer. The authors have worked with hundreds of companies and many types of billing system and discovered that in the early 2000s, the functions of billing systems were dramatically changing due to the combining of voice, data and other types of services. Billing systems have also been transforming to allow for charging of non-traditional products and services such as candy from vending machines, tickets for entertainment events, and home delivery of pizza. This book provides the fundamentals for telecom billing and customer service systems. The topics that are explained include: types of services, standard billing processes, real time billing, multilingual support, multiple currencies, inter-carrier settlements, event sources and tracking, mediation devices, call detail records (CDRs), call processing, cycle billing, clearinghouse, invoicing, management reporting, processing payments, and posting to the financial system. Also included are the fundamentals of Customer Relationship Management (CRM), account activation, account management, billing system costs, call center, collections, exchange message record (EMR), automatic message accounting (AMA), carrier inter-exchange billing exchange record (CIBER), transferred accounting process (TAP), network data management-usage (NDM-U), interim standard 124 (IS-124), applications service providers (ASPs), local number portability (LNP), and customer self-care.
