Compared to Harry Newton, Alexander Graham Bell knew nothing about phones. A decade before telecom got “hot,” Newton was writing about it and showing buyers how to get the most for their money. Since then, telecom’s been ice cold, warm, and everything in between. But Harry’s still here, sharing what he’s learning, via Newton’s Telecom Dictionary.
His new 21st Edition offers up 22,400 polished (and occasionally hilarious) definitions: from traditional telecom to wireless, VoIP, even RFID. Want to know about WiMax? Fixed-mobile convergence? “Slamming”? Whatever: It’s here.
