CIS535 Telecommunications

Telecommunications has become an essential feature of the business environment, and has become linked to the success of a business' operations. It has been said that information is the lifeblood of the organization. Then, to complete the analogy, telecommunications represents the firm's circulatory system that maintains its life and viability. This course systematically evaluates a fictional business and its telecommunications systems. Students will examine telecommunications primarily from a business management perspective, rather than an engineering one. The objective of this course is to provide students with the vocabulary and technical understanding required to be effective telecommunications decision makers.
