Review:
When Stallings' name is on the cover, you generally know two things: 1) the book is a textbook. 2) the book is a classic reference in the field. Chapter one is an introduction, both to the book as a whole, and to the drive towards broadband communications. Part one is an overview of the basic concepts in digital communications. Chapter two looks at analogue and digital information. The problems and protocols of the subscriber line are reviewed in chapter three. The fundamental ideas of networking are explored in chapter four. Part two turns to the specifics of ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) itself. Chapter five lays out the foundations for ISDN, making a number of points that generally get lost in the "gee whiz" over h... Rest of this review on the detail page

Book description
A global information revolution has begun. Converging communications and computing technologies are forming information superhighways, linking people and information interactively, at any time, in any place, via a combination of multimedia, digital video, sound, graphics, and text.

This is the first book to examine these issues. It shows that by focusing on users, a range of multimedia applications emerge which make more imaginative use of computing and bandwidth than the products of the current focus on application development, such as"video on demand."The...

Review:
After the rash of recent "blue sky" offerings about the informmercial supercliche, it is nice to see a thoroughly informed and realistically analytical book about high bandwidth networks. This work is still tied closely to US regulations and their proposed (or should it be "promised") National Information Infrastructure, but it is possibly illustrative for other countries. This volume does look practically at current and developing technologies. Economics and especially the legislative and public policy factors are a primary emphasis. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996

Review:
Today a call can be made from one end of the country to another for less cost than a local call at a pay phone. Why is it, then, that I afford my wife such rich amusement by the lengths to which I will go rather than return a long distance phone call? My irrational prejudice about the expense of long distance was fixed back in the dark ages, when it *was* relatively expensive. It was common practice, when leaving friends or relatives on a long trip, to place a collect call to those one had left once one had arrived at the destination. They wouldn't accept the call, naturally, but would understand that you had arrived safely. This was sometimes known as "code calling". Such practice was, of course, a form of fraud. Phone companies ge... Rest of this review on the detail page
