Telecommunications Traffic, Tariffs and Costs. An Introduction for Managers — Recommend this title to your library

Thank you

Your recommendation has been sent to your librarian.

A number of different solutions may meet the operational and technical needs of a telecommunications requirement with a sufficient degree of success to warrant consideration. Among these, the 'right' solution is the one that offers the most effective answer to that communications need at the lowest cost. Choosing the right solution involves the operational, technical and financial evaluation of each alternative. The busy manager who wishes to update a private telecommunications facility may decide to place the entire responsibility for finding the right solution upon a firm of consultants or even one supplier, but this is not necessarily the most cost-effective course of action. The recommended solution could prove to be a less-than-optimum compromise, especially if the choice has been restricted to the products of one manufacturer. Even a busy manager, however, can assume at least some of this responsibility personally. At the very least, personal involvement will reduce the amount and cost of expert advice needed and help to ensure a satisfactory outcome to the project.
