Product Description In 1968, when Tom Carter won his lawsuit against AT&T, it allowed him to connect his oilfield telephones with acoustic radio couplers. This result, known as the Carterfone Decision, gave birth to what became known as the Interconnect Industry. In Phones, Tones, and Erotic Zones, Telecom warrior Gus Harper shares his forty years in an industry fraught with "shenanigans, pranks, and outright dirty tricks," everything that gave the industry a bad name...and launched it into global dominance. In this tell-all book, the key players are revealed in the most honest, no-holds-barred vignettes ever put to paper: the egos, the scheming, the good guys, and the bad. The author covers the scope of an industry that has been praised and maligned, its leaders honored and imprisoned. From brilliant planning to nefarious scheming, design muck-ups to a Cheech and Chong-like, adventurous approach to sales, this book delivers. About the Author Gus Harper has forty years of experience in the telecommunications industry.
