Review:
I must admit that I agree with those who see IRC (Internet Relay Chat) as a profound waste of time. Yes, a dozen years ago, I conducted an international conference via CompuServe's CB Simulator, and I figured that there was potential in real-time chat. But that was a far cry from the anarchic noise that goes on in pretty much every IRC channel. So, why am I going to keep Harris' book? Because it's the most realistic, balanced, complete, and positively helpful book I've read on the application to date. Harris gives some background, netiquette tips, time savers, self defense, a glossary, a list of client software, and a list of servers. Mostly, though, he provides a list of commands--and commands, and more commands, and options for the... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
Telecommunications, for the purposes of this reference, covers eighteen Standard Industry Classifications (SICs). (The newer North American Industry Classification System codes are not used due to business inertia, but a conversion table is provided.) This casts a somewhat wider net than some might suppose, including radio and television broadcasting and movie production. As one might assume from the classification system, the content is based on US activity, although international enterprises have a bearing both on technical and business aspects. Chapter one is a general overview, looking at history, a terse set of only four biographies of "pioneers," projections for various technologies, and a quick review of industry leading compani...

Review:
CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) is the system of choice for wireless communications where multiple access is needed. It is tolerant of interference, provides good quality of service, and is comparatively secure. In addition, there are economies in bandwidth efficiency and battery life. CDMA is well positioned to be the backbone of advanced telecommunications services. Chapter one outlines these and other advantages of CDMA, as well as explaining the basics of TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) and FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access). Keying and Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum are reviewed in chapter two, which is heavy on math and seemingly aimed at engineering students. There is a brief discussion of voice encoding, and...

Review:
It was kind of boring until page nine. After having told us that ISDN was good, that ISDN was probably available, and that ISDN equipment could be found, that was where they'd placed a section entitled "You May Still Need a Specialist to Assist". What!?! Look, I know you need a high speed serial port; I know ISDN service isn't available everywhere; I know it may be difficult finding ISDN hardware, ISDN Internet service, or someone at the telco who even knows what ISDN *is*; but once you have that, connecting it up isn't that much harder than dealing with a slightly non-standard modem! Well, they do give you a *little* information. There is, for example, the warning not to replace your analog phone line with ISDN unless you have back... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
This book is a practical guide to getting and using ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) service. It covers the concepts, hardware, service, wiring, applications. Appendices give you useful lists of hardware, software, and service vendors, as well as user groups and other resources. While telecommunications specialists might want more, for the home user, non- technical manager, or even for the technical specialist from a non-telecom background, this book provides a clear and easy to read introduction and guidebook. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996
