  2. 2. CATALOGUE OF PUBLICATIONS Dear Customer, Thank you for your trust in the integrity and impartiality of ITU’s publications, and for continuing to make ITU a leading international publisher of information on communication technolo- gies, developments and statistics since its founding over 140 years ago. The quantity of publications and new customers continues to grow steadily. We very much appreciate your contribution as a valuable ITU customer to its continuing success! Most of you are already familiar with our collection of ITU-R and ITU-T Recom- mendations, which, as international standards, help towards establishing an even playing field in the global telecommunication markets. For the seafaring community, ITU-R maritime publications constitute another capital collection, measured by customer demand that continues to grow each year. Did you know that no ship sails the seas without these publications on board? And that it is thanks to ITU’s MARS system that Search and Rescue teams are provided with up-to-date information from the ITU master Ship station da- tabase, enabling them to successfully carry out their operations. We have a range of products that makes us unique in the publishing world. You will find titles ranging from spectrum management and satellite com- munications to ICT indicators and policy and development issues, so whether you are a broadcasting engineer, regulator, telecommunications professional, computer specialist, business analyst or student, you will surely find something of interest to you. As the focus of ITU’s activities on global communications broadens to fresh horizons, new titles reflecting this change on such topics as cybersecurity, spam and cybercrime, helping bridge the digital divide, the management of emergency telecommunications and next generation network standards can be found inside this edition. The greater part of ITU publications are available in electronic format (some in both electronic and hard copy formats) and can be purchased and downloaded directly from at any time, day or night. Most ITU publications are also available in printed format, and many on CD/ DVD-ROM. The ITU Catalogue and both its annexed Lists of ITU-R Recommenda- tions and Reports and ITU-T Recommendations contain all the titles currently for sale. These can be ordered online or by using the order form, which you will find in this Catalogue. ITU publishes in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish (please note that not all titles are available in all six languages). This Catalogue also contains useful information on pricing discounts, methods of payment and related conditions of sale, as well as a snapshot of what is ITU and information on whom to contact. Keep connected to ITU’s publications web pages at: www.itu.int/publications. They are up- dated regularly and new publications are posted there as soon as they become available, as well as the latest news. You can now also connect to our NEW weekly update of the online edition of this Catalogue at www.itu.int/pub/S-GEN-CAT.OL-2008/en. As always, we welcome your feedback and comments.

Spurred by dramatic technical developments, such as high-speed digital telephony, cable television, wireless technologies, and the Internet, the lines between traditional common carrier telephone ("conduit") services and broadcast-based information and entertainment ("content") services are becoming increasingly blurred. These trends are compelling regulators to re-examine many of the fundamental policies and institutional structures whose goals are to guide telecommunications industry evolution for the benefit of society. The Regulatory Colloquium itself and the preparation of the Briefing Report were funded by the World Bank and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The principal author is Mr. David Townsend.

Colloquium No. 7 - Transforming Economic Relationships in International Telecommunications Geneva, 3-5 December 1997 This Briefing Report was prepared for the seventh ITU Regulatory Colloquium, held at ITU Headquarters in Geneva on 3-5 December 1997. The topic of the Seventh Colloquium was a detailed examination of the present crisis in the international system by which payments are made between countries for international telecommunications services (known, for short, as the "accounting rate" problem). The Colloquium examined in detail alternatives to the present system as well as means by which the system may be adjusted to reflect current realities.

While there is an already enormous and growing literature on e-commerce, relatively little attention has been paid to the link between e-commerce and telecommunication regulation. In addition, relatively little attention has been paid to providing guidance to telecom officials in developing countries on this link. The analysis in this Briefing Report is intended to help fill this gap.

  19. 19. 1. PUBLICATIONS OF THE ITU GENERAL SECRETARIAT 1.3 Policy and Market Analysis The ITU Internet Reports (published in line with PP Resolution 101), were launched in 1997, and span over half a decade of evolution of the Internet together with fixed and mobile telephone networks. Publications under the ITU New Initiatives Programme cover a wide variety of subjects that have been discussed at expert workshops since 1999, from competition policy to Internet governance, and from 3G to RFID. These are published in line with Council Decision 496. Since 2003, SPU has also released publications on issues of particular importance at the World Summit on the Information Society, e.g. on countering spam and bridging the digital divide. ITU Internet Reports Series ITU Internet Reports 2006: digital.life 2006, 8th edition This eight edition of the ITU Internet Reports, entitled "digital.life", delves into how individual lives are changing in the digital age. Prepared especially for ITU TELECOM WORLD (4-8 December 2006 in Hong Kong), the report begins by examining the underlying technological enablers of new digital lifestyles, from upgrading network infrastructure to value creation at its edges. In studying how businesses are adapting to fast-paced digital innovation, the report looks at how they can derive value in an environment driven by convergence at multiple levels. The question of extending access to underserved areas of the world is considered as an important priority. In light of media convergence, a fresh approach to policy-making may be required, notably in areas such as content, competition policy, and spectrum management. 12 Moreover, as our lives become increasingly mediated by digital technologies, the role of digital identities (both abstract and practical) presents a new challenge. Concerns over privacy and data protection are not being sufficiently addressed by current methods for managing identities online. As such, the report examines the changing digital individual, and outlines the need for improving the design of identity management systems for a healthy and secure digital world.

It looks at the next step in “always on” communications, in which new ubiquitous technologies (such as radio-frequency identification and sensors) promise a world of networked and interconnected devices (e.g. fridge, television, vehicle, garage door, etc.) that provide relevant content and information whatever the location of the user – heralding the dawn of a new era, one in which the internet (of data and people) acquires a new dimension to become an Internet of Things. Topics covered include new enabling technologies, business opportunites, public policy challenges, and implications for the developing world. A statistical annex covering over 200 economies is also included. MEDIA PRICE CHF LANGUAGE ARTICLE ISBN PAGE NBR 100.- E 27441 92-61-11291-9 200 100.- E

Although most existing users are residential consumers, broadband access is being touted as a way for governments to attract investment, ensure future economic prosperity and provide enhanced social 17 welfare. But among developing countries, there is a fear that the huge investments necessary to establish widescale broadband access will open up a new digital divide. This publication - the eleventh in the New Initiatives series - summarizes the main discussion points and conclusions of a workshop on promoting broadband, held in April 2003, while the accompanying CD-ROM contains case studies, background materials, useful broadband links, and extensive analyses of different aspects of the topic. The workshop was organized by the ITU Strategy and Policy Unit, and examined the different strategies that have been followed by different world economies, at local and national levels, for promoting the deployment and use of broadband networks. The key research question was why some economies have been more successful than others and whether this success can be replicated.
