9780070344372: Isdn: Concepts, Facilities, and Services (Mcgraw-Hill Computer Communications Series)

Remarkable sales for three successive editions have made it the bestselling ISDN book of all time. Now Kessler and Southwick's one-volume resource is bigger and better than ever. The "Signature Edition" covers all the latest developments in broadband communications -- including ADSL, IP switching, and Ipv6 -- while retaining the encyclopedic treatment that has distinguished it as the definitive reference on the subject.

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
