Overview

A complete hands-on guide to designing and implementing all types of telecommunications transmission systems.

For more than 23 years, Telecommunications Transmission Handbook has been the guide to designing and building telecommunications transmission systems and the reference of choice among a generation of communications engineers and technicians. Its total systems approach examines each telecommunications transmission specialty as an integral part of a larger system. This book constructs a framework for understanding and exploiting the ways in which each telecommunications specialty affects all the others. It provides:
* Clear, methodical delineation of key principles, theories, and concepts
* Lucid explanations of cutting-edge design methodologies
* Comprehensive coverage of new and emerging technologies
* Step-by-step instructions on how to design and implement all types of telecommunications links, systems, and subsystems.

Following in this tradition, this Fourth Edition is fully updated to include coverage of important recent developments in telephone transmission, digital networks, microwave systems, radio systems, VSAT networks, meteor burst communication, fiber optics, and more. It also features entirely new chapters on cellular and wireless communication systems, cable and digital television, and low Earth-orbiting satellites.

A senior life member of the IEEE, Roger Freeman has lectured at numerous professional conferences and published widely in international telecommunications journals. He gives telecommunications seminars at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

    Classic text reference

    I own the third edition of this book. I had review the updated editions throughout the years, and found them to be just as informative. Updated to current technology. This is a master reference for anyone who practices in the telecommunications industry or electronics engineering field.
