Overview

Now that we have entered the twenty first century, we see new communication technologies being introduced at an astonishing rate. Making sense of these technologies is increasingly difficult. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Communication Technology Update is the single best source for the latest developments, trends, and issues in communication technology. Now in its eighth edition, Communication Technology Update has become an indispensable information resource for business, government, and academia.



Communication Technology Update provides students and professionals alike with the latest information in all areas of telecommunication: electronic mass media, computers, consumer electronics, games, satellites, and telephony. A discussion of hardware, software, organizational structure, and political and economic influences is complimented by background information explaining the evolution of each of the technologies.

As always, every chapter has been completely rewritten to reflect the latest developments and market statistics, and now covers digital television, teleconferencing, and electronic games, in addition to the two dozen technologies explored in the previous edition.

Information on similar technologies has been concentrated into a smaller number of chapters to make it easier to compare history, revenues, technical descriptions, and user information across technologies.

The companion website, www.tfi.com/ctu, offers updated information submitted by chapter authors and offers links to other Internet resources.

Audience: Students in undergraduate communications courses; professionals in all areas of telecommunications.
