Technologies and Systems for Access and Transport Networks

Most telecom books explore a specific system or technology, like GSM or ATM, and quickly go out of date. Not this one - it's the first volume that focuses on core technologies at the heart of every system, showing engineers how to apply, reuse, and enhance these building blocks from one generation of networks to the next. It unravels the complexities behind such technologies as synchronization, multiple access, and switching to help telecom professionals optimize performance in any system and pave the way to next-generation advances of their own. An indispensable reference, solutions kit, and idea book wrapped up in one, the book is designed to help all telecom professionals thrive as current systems evolve and new systems emerge.
