Communications engineers and professionals know that Uyless Black provides the clearest, most concise explanations of advanced communications technology available. This completely revised edition delivers the information professionals need to understand today's revolutionary communications technologies, -- with detailed coverage of high-speed alternatives such as ATM, B-ISDN, Gigabit Ethernet, and SONET, as well as emerging wireless and Internet technologies. Since the first edition of Emerging Communications Technologies was published in September 1995, dramatic changes in communications have taken place, and this book covers them all. New coverage includes: new technology options for residential broadband, including B-ISDN; advanced LAN architectures such as Gigabit Ethernet; advanced wireless technologies such as PCS; evolving carrier technologies such as intelligent networks; and new Internet technologies such as IPv6 and Mbone multicasting. All communications engineers and professionals.

From the Publisher:

The communications professional's guide to emerging communications technologies, including: ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode), FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface), SMDS (Switched Megabit Data Services), SONET (Synchronous Optical Network), and mobile-wireless technologies. It provides readers with a comparison of these technologies, their pros and cons, a description of where they do or do not compete with each other, and an examination of their targeted applications. Issues involved in making the transition from traditional technologies to these new technologies are also covered. Based on training courses given by the author at AT&T, Digital, Bellcore, Bell Northern Research and British Telecom. Each technology is described in terms of the following--typical topologies, layers, PDUs (protocol data units), operations in detail, network to network operations, the MIB (Management Information Bases).

From the Back Cover:


74283-3

All the newest technologies described in a single book.

The explosive growth in telecommunications has resulted in a bewildering assortment of new technologies. Today's high-capacity multi-vendor networks are more efficient—and more complex—than ever before.

Emerging Communications Technologies untangles the confusion with clear description of the latest technologies for computing and communications, then compares the applications in practical terms. For further clarity, international standards are explained.

The first edition of Emerging Communications Technologies was a major hit in 1995. This fully revised edition includes expanded coverage of ATM, SONET, PCS and other subjects from the previous work, but focuses chiefly on such hot new topics as:

  • Gigabit Ethernet and advanced LAN architectures.
  • Broadband ISDN and other high-capacity carriers.
  • ATM and frame relay.
  • Advanced Intelligent Networks.
  • Residential broadband.
  • IPv6.

“Worksheets” at the end of each chapter help summarize the key features of each specific technology. Appendices offer tutorials on MIBs, protocols, networking, and related subjects.
