Telecom Audit Services Types

Telecom audit services types include but are not limited to wired communications and wireless phone and data services. When asked the question: What is included in wired services?  Our best answer is wired services are wired communications with data that is transmitted via wire based technology.  Telephone lines (more often called phone lines) are sometimes called landlines in the telecom community.  Most of the wired telecommunications networks use fiber optics to transmit the best signals for incoming calls (also known as inbound calling) and outgoing (also known as outbound calls). The old copper wiring is still used but not very much.  Data is another telecom audit services types.  With MPLS, SIP, and VOIP to SD-Wan technology change for our future is endless.

These wired and wireless services are overseen by the FCC, PSC, and PUC, for maintaining and governing telecommunications integrity of service for both the Telecommunication companies and their customers, including customer service.

Wireless communications do not use any landlines.  These services are transmitted via hand held phones sometimes called mobile phones, cell phones, or wireless phones.  These wireless devices use radio frequency instead of the wired end to end technology.  Wireless devices such as laptops, and cell phones are what we think of when mentioning wireless communications. However they are not the only wireless devices.  Wireless services are used for radio transmissions of many types including aircraft, broadband services and television.  Other more common devices using wireless communications include microwave signals, paging, and ship radio stations.  Technology has enabled wireless devices to expand.  This has brought communication to a new forefront giving us the freedom to work in most any environment with freedom to talk on the move.

Both wired and wireless services are governed by the FCC, PSC, and PUC.  These commissions are managed by our government for maintaining and governing telecommunications integrity.  The FCC, PSC and PUC regulate both the Telecom Service Providers and their customers, including customer service.

The Federal Communications Commission FCC regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. An independent U.S. government agency overseen by Congress, the commission is the United States’ primary authority for communications laws, regulation and technological innovation.  The FCC is located in various states across the US.  The web is a good location to research your state and FCC office.

Telecom Audit Services Types both wired and wireless are monitored by the FCC

The FCC helps in promoting competition, innovation and investment in broadband services and facilities.  The Federal Communication Commission supports the nation’s economy by ensuring an appropriate competitive framework for the unfolding of the communications revolution.  They also encourage the highest and best use of spectrum domestically and internationally.  The FCC revises media regulations so that new technologies flourish alongside diversity and localism.  In summary, they provide leadership in strengthening the defense of the nation’s communications infrastructure.

The Public Utility Commission PUC has jurisdiction over local telephone service providers. The Commission does not regulate cellular and wireless phone companies, cable TV companies or long-distance companies. For more information on these, contact your local municipality about cable TV problems or the FCC about wireless phone and long distance issues.

The Public Service Commission (also known as the PSC), gives information about telephone and telecommunication companies within the United States. When searching the PSC database you can search by Company Name, Type of Certificate, Geographic Exchange Area, or Docket Number.

The PSC focuses on consumer issues.  They give maps on area codes, show assignments of the abbreviated dialing codes, and give forms and information for Telecommunication Companies.  They including information on Universal Access Fund (UAF).  The PSC also gives the list of certified telecommunication companies for each specific state.
