From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
If you're in the telecom or networking business—whether as a technical or marketing professional—you need an up-to-date reference that delivers fast answers without burying you in detail. You need a book like Thomas' Concise Telecom & Networking Dictionary.
You name it, you'll find it in these 900+ pages—regardless of the environment you operate in, UNIX/Linux, Microsoft, Novell, or otherwise. From the desktop and LAN to the wide area network, it's covered—with special focus on today's Internet and intranet technologies, on standards such as xDSL and VoIP, and on the Cisco technologies at the heart of so many networks.
This is one telecom reference written by an actual practitioner. Thomas C. Thomas was until recently a senior network engineer at MCI, one of the folks responsible for keeping the US Postal Service's WAN running. Nowadays he leads his own network training and certification company. He obviously recognizes that real-world professionals don't have time to waste: the definitions in this book are consistently brief, cogent, and "to the point." You'll refer to it constantly.
