Item description for Basics Of Telecommunications (Basics Books series) by Stephan S. Jones...
The telecommunications industry is one of the world's most complex, a labyrinth-like amalgamation of technologies and systems-some compatible, some not-that make possible efficient transmissions of voice and data around the world. Just as it would be impossible to build a house without a solid foundation, so too would it be impossible to fully understand the myriad, highly technical technologies that abound in the telecommunications industry without a solid knowledge base. Equally as difficult as understanding how these technologies work is grasping how they work together to make data-centric communications and information exchange possible. The Basics of Telecommunications provides the foundation upon which all future understanding of the industry will be built. The fifth edition of this best-selling handbook has been newly updated to reflect the industry's latest advancements and current trends and covers all major information-industry technologies, including asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL), cable modems, fiber-optic technology, synchronous optical networks (SONETs), asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), optical networks, intelligent networks, voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), Internet telephony, and mobile communications. It also covers a wide variety of related topics, including operations support systems (OSSs), virtual private networks (VPNs), digital technology, and Internet access. In addition, all-new tutorials have been added to the volume on multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), softswitch-based networks, converged networks, packet voice, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), smart antennas, 802.11 wireless local-area network (LAN) security, and unified messaging. In short, The Basics of Telecommunications offers a concise yet rich examination and definition of the key technologies and systems that comprise the backbone of telecommunications worldwide.
