The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission should be closed down, says Eamon Hoey, one of Canada’s more outspoken industry consultants. Find out why by reading the feature on telecom regulation in the December issue of Communications & Networking magazine.

This feature includes information on the federal industry department’s telecommunications policy panel, and opinions from both the incumbent and competitive carriers who are affected by regulation.

Check out the November issue of C&N, which includes a feature on remote access, and a case study on Tucker Wireline, an oil well logging company that uses Telus Mobility’s 1X network to transmit invoices from the drilling sites to its head office.

In addition to the telecom regulation feature, the December issue includes a case study on Wardrup Engineering, a consulting firm that uses Wide-Area File Services to backup its CAD data, and a Focus article on biometrics.

In 2006, Communications & Networking is scheduled to publish features on video services in the January issue and wide-area networks in February.

EDGE

In our December issue, EDGE magazine takes a good hard look at all the executive gadgets. And while individual users may be seduced by the gee-whiz appeal and hype around handheld “Swiss Army” computers, CIOs are taking a more critical view. Find out why in our next issue. Also, we look at how IT departments are expanding their focus, literally, as they are being asked to look at, support and even help purchase traditional office equipment all the way from small, compact digital projectors to the high-end expensive publishing systems and printers.
