Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (3) Overview of technology of electronic media and related societal issues.
COMM 484 Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (3)
COMM 484 will introduce the technologies in telecommunications and information processing, with an eye toward giving students the necessary perspective on how these technologies work and how markets develop. The course investigates old, new and prospective technologies primarily through an interactive classroom analysis of incumbent or emerging companies bringing products and services to market. Students will conduct their analysis by examining materials not customarily used by undergraduates including stock prospectuses, company annual reports and Internet searches. The class will consider recent strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions (whether consummated or not) in the context of whether and how technologies drove the deal.
