From the Back Cover:

A practical, accessible survey of telecommunications and data communications services and technologies

Finally, there is a commonsense guide to telecommunications and data communications that non-engineers can understand. Popular author Ray Horak provides comprehensive, up-to-date information in plain English, instead of confusing technotalk. Recent developments covered include:

  • 802.16 and WiMAX

  • Passive Optical Network (PON)

  • 802.11g/n

  • Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO)

  • Broadband over Power Line (BPL)

  • Instant Messaging

  • ZigBee

In addition, Telecommunications and Data Communications Handbook expands on topics of increasing interest, including:

  • Fiber Optics

  • Storage Area Networks (SANs)

  • Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)

  • CATV Networks

  • Wireless, including Bluetooth

  • Cellular, including 2.5G and 3G, photos, video, and ring tones and ring-back tones

  • Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), including IP PBX and IP Centrex

  • Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) vs. H.323

Complete with a discussion of the current regulatory and business environments, including divestiture and revestiture as well as mergers and acquisitions, this is the ideal reference for non-engineering professionals in the end-user, carrier, content or service provider, manufacturing, regulatory, or financial communities.
