The author presents an overview of a generic telecommunications network and its components, and discusses the current developments in satellite and fiber optics technologies, with an eye on the trends in industry. A baseline model is proposed, and a cost comparison of fiber- vs. satellite-based networks is made. A step-by-step `road map' to the successful strategic planning of telecommunications services and facilities is presented. This road map provides for optimization of the current and future networks and services through effective utilization of both satellites and fiber optics. The road map is then applied to different segments of the telecommunications industry and market place, to show its effectiveness for the strategic planning of executives of three types: those heading telecommunications manufacturing concerns, those leading communication service companies, and managers of telecommunication/MIS departments of major corporations. Future networking issues, such as developments in ISDN (integrated services digital network) standards and technologies, are addressed
