This book explains how telecommunications networks work. It uses straightforward language supported by copious block-schematic diagrams so that non-engineers and engineers alike can learn about the principles of fixed and mobile telecommunications networks carrying voice and data. The book covers all aspects of today's networks, including how they are planned, formed and operated, plus next generation networks and how they will be implemented. After an introductory chapter on telephony the book briefly describes all of today's networks – PSTN, mobile, cable television, the Internet, etc. – and considers how they interconnect. Individual chapters then consider the principles, technologies and network structures relating to transmission, circuit switching, signalling and control, data (including voice-over-IP) networks, and mobile networks. The important subject of numbering and addressing for telephony and IP is then covered. The book concludes with a chapter designed to pull everything together, considering architecture, quality of service and performance, operations and network evolution. Despite the rapid changes taking place in telecommunications today - covering customer expectations, commercial arrangements, regulation, markets and services, as well as technology - this book's coverage of the basic principles makes it a helpful and enduring reference for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and for professionals working in the industry.

The rapid expansion of the field of telecommunication networks call for a new edition to assist the readers with development of understanding towards new telecommunication technologies. This well-accepted textbook, now in its Second Edition, is designed for the final-year undergraduate and the first-year graduate students in electronics and communication engineering and allied subjects. It fulfils the need for a suitable textbook in the area of telecommunication switching systems and networks. The text covers, in a single volume, both switching systems and telecommunications networks. The book begins with a brief discussion on the evolution of telecommunication. It then goes on to give a classification scheme for switching systems, and describes the basic components of a switching system and the fundamental concepts of network structures. It provides an in-depth coverage of fibre optic communication system and the traffic engineering concepts. A distinguishing feature of the book is the thorough treatment of the most important telecommunication networks, viz. the public switched telephone network (PSTN), the public data network (PDN), and the integrated services digital network (ISDN). Worked-out examples and exercises would be of considerable assistance to the reader in understanding all aspects of telecommunication engineering. NEW TO THIS EDITION • Sections on SONET, WDM, and DWDM in Chapter 7 • New section on Broadband ISDN and related technologies in Chapter 11 • A new chapter on Mobile Communication which covers almost all aspects of the cell planning and mobile channels • A new chapter on Satellite Communication which gives sufficient introductory knowledge of the satellites, satellite orbits, and orbital theory • Satellite link budget analysis (with examples) in Chapter 13.

Feature interactions are related to the creation, maintenance, and evolution of new services (telephony, electronic commerce, multimedia, banking, etc.), and to the implementation of these services across distributed platforms. Some of the other aspects are software maintainability, software verification and validation, software documentation, and software development process. This book covers several types of telecommunication software (processing, communication, and management), multimedia applications and other types of distributed applications. Some of the contributions in the book represent work in progress, personal experience, and potential solutions. By their very nature, feature interactions can be found in different types of systems. The spectrum of contributions demonstrates the relevance of feature interactions problems. The book provides contributions by leading experts in these areas, covering many aspects of the specification, detection, and avoidance of feature interactions. The book presents research advances and report personal positions.

This book is for any telecommunications-convergence professional who needs to understand the structure of the industry, the structure of telephony networks and services, and the equipment involved.With the growing variety of networks and technologies now on offer it is inevitable that some convergence will take place between different networks, services and products. New VOIP (voice over internet protocol) networks must interwork with traditional networks. For instance, mobile phones can offer data services; wireless broadband connections to laptops will allow VOIP phone calls away from base; users could have the option of 'convergent phones' that can be used on a landline when at home or business, but which can be used as a mobile when on the move, and so on.
