  1. Regulation and the Evolution of the Global Telecommunications Industry

    Regulation and the Evolution of the Global Telecommunications Industry

    Edited by Anastassios Gentzoglanis, Anders Henten
    After decades of liberalization of the telecommunications industry around the world and technological convergence that allows for increasing competition, sector-specific regulation of telecommunications has been on the decline. As a result, the telecommunications industry stands in the middle of a debate that calls for either a total deregulation of access to broadband infrastructures or a separation of infrastructure from service delivery. This book proposes new approaches to dealing with the current and future issues of regulation of telecommunication markets on both a regional and a global scale. Learn More

  8. Innovation Networks in Knowledge-based Firms

    Innovation Networks in Knowledge-based Firms

    Mitsuru Kodama
    In Innovation Networks in Knowledge-based Firms, Mitsuru Kodama explores corporate strategic management in an information and communication technology (ICT) environment. Bridging theory and practice and providing international scope, the author seeks to make transparent the mechanisms behind the processes that generate product and service innovation in ICT industries, such as search and advertising (Yahoo, Google), music distribution (Apple iPod) and gaming (Sony Playstation, Nintendo DS). He develops new business models based on ‘boundary innovation’ management and explains the innovation networks formed via three types of knowledge innovator – platform, process, and content. These knowledge innovators play an important role in merging different technologies (including ICT) and business models to develop new business value chains and new industries that span various industrial fields.

  10. The Internationalisation of Mobile Telecommunications

    The Internationalisation of Mobile Telecommunications

    Peter Curwen, Jason Whalley
    Based upon the very latest data available, the underlying premise of the book is that mobile telecommunications is such a fast-moving sector that operators are obliged to alter their international strategies as circumstances unravel without necessarily having a long-term master plan, and hence that opportunism is a hallmark of operators’ international strategies. This state-of-the-art overview of the internationalisation of mobile telecommunications will prove essential reading for academics and practitioners with a vested interest in technology, telecommunications and strategic management.

  18. Risk, Complexity and ICT

    Risk, Complexity and ICT

    Edited by Ole Hanseth, Claudio Ciborra
    This book explores the challenges regarding risks and risk management related to the growing complexity of ICT solutions. The main argument of the book is that the complexity of ICT solutions has continued to grow throughout the history of ICT, and that it has now reached a level that goes beyond our current understanding of solutions and our methods of dealing with them. The contributors demonstrate how the complexity of ICT solutions is increased by various integration efforts. Drawing upon theories of risk society and reflexive modernization, various case studies are used to demonstrate efforts aimed at controlling and managing the complexities of various ICT solutions. Paradoxically, these control and management measures are shown to increase rather than decrease complexity and risk. Learn More

  19. Industrial Agglomeration and New Technologies

    Industrial Agglomeration and New Technologies

    Edited by Masatsugo Tsuji, Emanuelo Giovannetti, Mitsuhiro Kagami
    This book, a collaborative effort by researchers from Japan, Italy and the USA, seeks to explore the reasons for industrial clustering in certain regions of Asia, Europe and North America. The studies presented illustrate real examples of industrial clusters, adding anecdotal evidence to the emerging theory of economic geography by exemplifying the centripetal and centrifugal forces that regulate the clustering process. The authors examine clusters in a diverse set of countries including China, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the USA and Vietnam. Significantly, the book provides an interesting split between studies of IT and software-related industries, and more traditional sectors, such as steel and vehicle manufacturing. Learn More
