Why? Because it's impossible to keep up. Newton adds, changes, updates and expands over 100 definitions a week. No other industry changes as fast. No other industry has more confusing terms. If you're NEW or OLD to this industry, you'll use this dictionary. It not only defines the terms and the acronyms. It tells you what the term is, how it works, how you use it, what its business benefits are and how it fits into the scheme of things. This is not a common dictionary. It's far closer to an encyclopedia.
Newton's Telecom Dictionary is unlike any other technical reference you've ever read. First, it assumes that you, the reader, are not technical. Second, it assumes you want to fully understand the term in business terms. So it not only defines the term, but it provides "Buying Checklists," replete with warnings. Salesman use this book to understand their product's benefits. Users use this book to get a handle on conflicting technologies. Bosses use this dictionary to get more than enough info to be dangerous. Consultants use this book to glean higher fees. And lawyers actually use this book in court.
Every "new" telecom company from Intel to Microsoft to Novell, from Apple to National Semiconductor, from IBM to Motorola, from Natural MicroSystems to Dialogic, from Sun to Quest, uses this dictionary for training. All the traditional telecom companies, including AT&T, MCI, Sprint, Lucent, Nortel (Northern Telecom), Bell Atlantic, Rockwell, BellSouth, Ericsson and GTE, have contributed their company's definitions. As a result, Newton's Telecom Dictionary has truly become an industry-standard dictionary.
