This book presents current and established techniques for designing and engineering new intelligent telecommunications systems. The objective of this book is twofold. First, to provide communication system designers with information for modernizing existing networks, and for making these networks carry voice, data and multimedia information. Second, to provide network designers with numerous illustrations for fabricating and building new networks using the most recent technology. This work also includes a vast amount of material on many of the rapidly expanding telecommunications related areas such as Wireless ATM, HDSL, ADSL, loop topologies from the ANSI, ETSI, ITU, copper and hybrid fiber coaxial systems, cable TV networks, ISDN performance, fiber optics, SONET, and other current telecom topics. It includes a wealth of figures and tables as well as 21 pages of telecom acronyms with definitions. Design and Engineering of Intelligent Communication Systems is written for researchers and telecom professionals interested in building intelligent communications systems.
