The road uphill and the road downhill are one and the same. - Heraclitus

Precision of communication is important, more important than ever, in our era of having trigger balances, when a false, joy misunderstood word may create as much disaster as a sudden thoughtless act. - James Thurber

Welcome to FPTELEC/H4> Telecommunications Issues for Collaboration with Russia and the NIS

Welcome to "Friends and Partners Telecommunications", a mailing list designed to help facilitate information exchange concerning telecommunications and networking issues between the US (or, more broadly, "the west") and Russia and the NIS.

Our hope is that this list will be used for communication on a variety of networking issues and problems - including issues of establishing Internet connections; differences between various providers and options; use of different technologies such as radio relay, satellite-based IP communications, etc.; funding opportunities for establishing and maintaining network communications; distance learning opportunities and programs facilitated by network communications; and important Internet- accessible information services and resources related to telecommunications.

We hope that the exchange here will represent a healthy mix of both technical and non-technical topics - and that, over time, the growing archive of postings will provide a useful searchable database.

This service is an outgrowth of the larger "Friends and Partners" US-NIS exchange service. You can find more information about this service on the World Wide Web at the following URLs:
