With quantum leaps in science and technology occurring at breakneck speed, professionals in virtually every field face a daunting task-practicing their discipline while keeping abreast of new advances and applications in their filed. In no field is this more applicable than in the rapidly growing field of telecommunications engineering. Practicing engineers who work with ATM technology on a daily basis must not only keep their skill sharp in areas such as ATM network interfaces, protocols, and standards, but they must also stay informed, about new classes of ATM applications."A Textbook on ATM Telecommunications" gives active telecommunications engineers the advantage they need to stay sharp in their field. From the very basics of ATM to state-of-the-art applications, it covers the gamut of topics related to this intriguing switching and multiplexing strategy. Starting with an introduction to telecommunications, this text combines the theory underlying broadband communications technology with applied practical instruction and lessons gleaned from industry. The author covers fundamental communications and network theory, followed by applied ATM networking.
Each chapter includes design exercises as well as worked examples. "A Textbook on ATM Telecommunications" includes examples of design and implementation - making it an ideal tool for both aspiring and practicing telecommunication professionals. Read less
