The information in this book covers the data, methods, standards and fundamentals needed in a wide range of work situations. The practical focus of the book makes it essential for all telecommunications professionals and managers, and also for students who want to find the key information quickly.
The scope of this book encompasses signal sources, radio propagation and modulation, cabling, high speed data systems, switching, LANs and WANs, multiplexing, and the whole range of telecomms equipment: telephone systems, mobile phones, pagers, modems, fax, private mobile radio...
Review of the previous edition 'There is something relevant to all practising telecommunications engineers and the book will be particularly valuable to those looking for a basic but sound appreciation of fields outside their particular speciality. In short an excellent book.' BT Engineering Journal
All sections have been thoroughly updated to cover the latest developments in technology and standards, including ITU regulations, WAP, GSM1800, HDSL2, wireless local loops and wireless broadband, optical fibre amplifiers and the latest submarine cable systems.

'There is something relevant to all practising telecommunications engineers and the book will be particularly valuable to those looking for a basic but sound appreciation of fields outside their particular speciality. In short an excellent book.' BT Engineering Journal 'This is an impressive little book! The author clearly has a thorough understanding of the needs of working telecommunications engineers and a strong command of the subject matter. Almost 100% of the material is clearly relevant to the needs of telecommunications professionals. Professor Helms (US)
