9780070342477: Isdn: Concepts, Facilities, and Services (Mcgraw-Hill Series on Computer Communications)

A reference guide to Integrated Services Digital Network, or ISDN, this edition includes up-to-date treatment of broadband ISDN (B-ISDN), ATM and Frame Relay standards, such as the IEEE 802.9 on integrated voice/data local area networks. It also features new sections on B-ISDN applications, ATM's user-network interface (UNI) and network-network interface (NNI). Aimed primarily at telecommunications and data communications specialists designing and implementing ISDN networks, this text also includes many revised examples, an updated list of acronyms and abbreviations and a complete glossary.

Review:

Beyond providing in-depth analysis of many of the fundamental networking concepts and protocols, ISDN: Concepts, Facilities, and Services provides practical information. For instance, in the chapter on Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) applications, the book not only explains applications, but the authors also give 12 real-life examples, from Intel Corporation to USA Today. In the chapter "ATM Signaling Across the UNI," the book highlights how DSS2 messages are used and provides an entire section on how to set them up in different scenarios.

This well-written, well-organized book provides all the information anyone from a naive user to a networking expert needs. --Rob Frankland
