I have 'edited' Michael's email, only to keep the
pertinent information

What about telephony (telephone), teletype, sensors, et al?

Definition of "Telecom" -- It is all of the Above:

I don't know of any definitive book, or scholarly work
that can give you a 'straight' (chuckle, chuckle) answer.

It is like being a doctor - and then you are a specialist.

Ma Bell is a telecommunications company -- local, long distance,
submarine cable, video, cable, etc.

It is getting to where you need to spell-out --

For example, you could say

"Telecommunications primary area of expertise - Telephony,
also knowledgeable in data, video, and yada yada yada."

There is a 'trade' magazine that is titled "Telecommunications"
and it does NOT cover all of the field.

I hope this helps you. I have been involved in the
'telecommunications' business for a 'long' time, and I
can't give you a good definition.
