Synopses & Reviews
From the reviews: Computer Communications "Although the concept of ISDN has been with us now for over a decade, and much development work has been carried out du- ring this period, there are very few comprehensive books available on the subject. This is perhaps one of the best of them.The book aims to provide engineers and potential engi- neers with an overview of the requirements and features of ISDN that will be useful in thedesign, construction and operation of such systems. The author and his six collabora- tors have succeeded in this respect, producing a readable, yet thorough, technical book that can be recommended to a wider audience... Throughout the book the explanations are enhanced byclear, well-presented, relevant diagrams, and there is a very use- ful annex on the full set of standards relating to ISDN. This is a good book that will definitely be used as a refe- rence over the next few years by many engineers working in the area..." IEEE Computer "ISDN is a slimbut very effective book dealing with almost every aspect of the evolution ofpublic communications net- works...I highly recommend this book to engineerswho are new either to the field of ISDN or to specific ISDN topics. It is clear, concise, and is excellent padding for those tackling the CCITT recommendations."
This book provides a comprehensive presentation of all aspects of the ISDN concept and its realization: ISDN services; user-network interfaces; signalization protocols; ISDN switching techniques; ISDN standards.
