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.

Ray Horak is an independent consultant who has written more than 100 articles, technical white papers, case studies, and solutions briefs, as well as the bestselling Communications Systems and Networks and the recently published Telecommunications and Data Communications Handbook.
