Telecommunications Taxonomy

One of the defining features of the twenty-first century is the accessibility and widespread use of telecommunications technology. From internet and cable to cellular and satellite, 64.4% of the global population has access to telecommunications equipment. With such a massive field and the number of technological advances made every year, it comes as no surprise that the telecommunications sector is generating billions of documents and other forms of data. But what happens to all this data? Is it being used effectively or is it just disappearing into the world of dark data? What can your company do to stop that data from slipping into the unknown? WAND’s Telecommunications Taxonomy provides the structure needed to harness and control all of your company’s telecommunications data. You can organize your documents with ease, train your AI with speed, and begin using your documents and data more efficiently in no time! As with all our taxonomies, this strong foundation metadata model can be customized to include additional terms related to your specific needs or industry.

This taxonomy contains 1,740 terms and 986 synonyms. Top-level terms include:
• Communications Service Provider (12)
• Customer Service (66)
• Hardware (84)
• Infrastructure (209)
• Network Design (590)
• Networks (44)
• Regulations, Specifications, and Forms (254)
• Services (187)
• Standards (336)

While one taxonomy is good, multiple taxonomies to address other areas of your business is better! Check out some of our curated recommendations for other taxonomies that pair well with the
