Overview

Telecommunications for everyone! The essential guide for all telecom users!


In today's "wired" world, practically everyone needs to understand telecommunications. With The Essential Guide to Telecommunications, you can-even if you have no technical background at all!


Leading consultant Annabel Z. Dodd begins with the fundamental concepts you need to know to understand the industry. You'll learn the differences between analog and digital signals; what bandwidth is; why protocols and architectures matter; what multiplexing and compression are; and much more including local and wide area networks.


Next, she covers all the basics of business telephone systems, including PBXs, key systems, computer-telephony integration, voicemail, ACDs, wiring, and Centrex central-office alternatives. Learn what the Telecommunications Act of 1996 will-and won't-do to promote competition among phone companies, cable and wireless firms, and others.


Discover today's advanced public network services- and tomorrow's. Understand the technology and business advantages associated with:



  • ATM

  • DSL

  • ISDN

  • Frame relay

  • SONET


The Essential Guide to Telecommunications includes detailed, common-sense explanations of the Internet and wireless services, including intranets, extranets, PCS services, wireless data, wireless local telephony, Low Earth Orbit Satellites (LEOS), Internet and wireless security, cable modems, and more.


No industry will shape the 21st century as profoundly as telecommunications. Whether you're a technical, financial, sales, marketing or PR professional-or simply a citizen who communicates-this book makes sense of it all!

I read the first edition of this book and found it very helpful. I recommend this book to all of my CCNA and CCNP students (adults). It provides a vast amount of information in an interesting and easy to read form.

Magnificent! Perfect example of a Technology book everyone can relate too. After finishing this one, I was desperately looking for any other technology book written by this author, couldn't find any. Looking forward to find more books from this Author..
