Overview

Traffic on the Internet is doubling every 100 days. DSL, cell phones, IP (Internet Protocol) telephony, wireless networking, and e-commerce are changing the way people talk, work, shop, and do business. Newton's Telecom Dictionary is essential for everyone who must keep up with the new technologies and concepts -- this book meant to be used every day. Easy-to-understand definitions and mini essays simplify difficult terms.

This book has long been required reading for anyone involved in the telecommunications industry. It is more essential today than ever before because telecom is undergoing revolutionary changes. Telephones, PCs, networks, the Internet, and other technologies are converging, and new technologies and terms are being created every day. With this explosion in telecom technology, no one can keep up -- no matter how technically savvy. There are new standards, like TAPI and MAPI; new technologies, like voice over IP and extranets; new applications like unified messaging and collaborative computing. The author, Harry Newton, adds, changes, updates, and expands over 100 definitions a week just to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation. . Sales people can include the definitions in proposals to customers.Management can use the definitions to understand technicalities. And telecom professionals can use the definitions to keep up-to-date.

    The Best I've Ever Read

    This book is easy to follow and easy to understand. You'll read one definition that refers to '10 Base T'...whatever? So you look up '10 Base T...' and you get a very down to earth easy to follow definition!! I highly recommend this for anyone who has trouble understanding the terms that are being thrown at you in the Telecom world.
