This one-of-a-kind volume gives you a practical approach to broadband delivery and dissects competing technologies in terms that are important to you—markets and business opportunities. You'll find jargon-free, business-based descriptions of products/technologies, applications, and interrelationships—with an emphasis on key comparison factors needed for decision-making.

Writing with the surety and thoroughness of a telecom insider and business executive, Louis clearly and painlessly demonstrates how broadband services are delivered over today's complex telecommunications infrastructure—minus the heavy-duty math.

Louis gets you to focus on the basics, the needs of the customer, and the needs of the marketplace. "Telecommunications service provisioning is like national politics; at the end of the day it is all local." - P. J. Louis
