The definitive A-Z guide for building your telecommunications vocabulary! Telecommunications technology-and terminology-continue to evolve at a dizzying pace, but this reference makes it easy to stay current, or to quickly "fill in the blanks." In a single, alphabetically organized volume, it clearly explains it all-voice and data applications; LANs, WANs and satellite networks; the Internet and intranets; new technologies and acronyms; fiber and wireless; cellular and cable; components and concepts; and much, much more! More detailed than a dictionary, but less mathematical than a handbook, each of the 200 entries is concisely described and conveniently cross-referenced. In addition to providing such "layperson friendly" nutshell definitions to all major telecommunications-related applications, technologies, products, and services, there are also discussions of key regulations and standards, relevant management concepts, and profiles of the various organizations that have contributed significantly to the industry. This reference is absolutely indispensable for any telecommunications professional as well as for any manager or marketer who needs to get up to speed in a hurry-whatever the specific "need to know" may be! ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nathan J. Muller (Huntsville, AL) is a consultant who specializes in telecommunications. He has written 1500 articles for nearly 50 magazines and 14 other books, including The Totally Wired Web Toolkit.
