This book introduces the fundamental concepts of electronic communications systems, data communications, and networks. Topics covered include wireless and wireline telecommunications systems, basic data communications networks and systems, local area networks, internetworks, and the Internet, including the TCP/IP protocol suite. The text describes how the networks themselves work; it does not describe how the software applications that utilize the network work.

Readers with previous knowledge in basic electronics, including fundamental digital concepts and binary number systems, will have little trouble understanding the topics presented. Each chapter contains numerous examples that emphasize the most important concepts presented. When appropriate, questions and problems are included at the end of each chapter, and answers to selected problems are provided at the end of the book. Chapters and topics within chapters do not need to be covered in the same sequence as they are presented in the book.
