This is a straight-forward technical dictionary, featuring nearly 4,000 concise definitions, many with detailed diagrams and photos. Designed to be clear and understandable to even complete novices, the first two editions of the book provided a gateway for thousands into the acronym-filled world of telecom.

¿The Very Best ¿ I am a manager for an internet access company. I have many books about telecom. This one is the best of them all. The CD ¿ is the best CD I have seen with a book.¿
¿More than a dictionary ¿ This book has helped me adjust to the telephone and internetworking world like no other ¿ I thought the 1,000 additional pages on the CD was some kind of gimmick! It is sure is no gimmick and there is more excellent stuff here than I imagined!¿
