THE BLOCKBUSTER OVERVIEW OF BROADBAND
Updated and Expanded to Reflect the Latest Technologies!

Whether you're a “techie” or a business executive, getting a top-to-bottom understanding of broadband – the kind that will pay “real world” dividends at work — has never been easier! In this straightforward, jargon-free volume, renowned communications expert and master instructor Bud Bates breaks down every broadband technology and explains it by function. Bates subjects each technology to the three essential questions:
* What is it?
* What will it do for me?
* What it is going to cost me?

No matter what your role in the telecommunications field, whether you're a network administrator or marketing manager, you'll get all the latest coverage in communications, from basic concepts to advanced topics. Not theory, but the practical info you need to make the right choice and get the job done right the first time

This second edition has been updated to include the latest technologies, including:
* MPLS
* 2.5G/3G Wireless
* GPRS
* MMDS
* And more

With over 200 detailed illustrations and a logical building-block organization, the Handbook considers the concept of a technology, looks a deployment and cost issues, and then describes the use of technologies as they are implemented. Bates gives you exactly what you need to survive and prosper in today's complex, budget-conscious communications arena.

If you want a reference that goes beyond theory to provide wide-ranging, practical coverage of the latest telecom technologies and their application – your search ends with Broadband Telecommunications Handbook, 2/e.
