I've spent quite a while in the telecom industry - specifically, writing software used by telcos to do their thing. Here are some resources that you might find helpful:
- Signalling System 7 is the way that telephone switches talk to one another. http://www.pt.com/tutorials/ss7/
explains how it works (at a high level).
- how could I not plug the company I'm working for? http://www.blackinksystems.com/
makes software that helps carriers make more money.
- voice over IP is an interesting technology. I spent a few weeks playing with some open-source software written by a company called Vovida, and it's pretty darn cool. http://www.vovida.org/
