illustrated by b/w. diagrams; "this book presents a first study course across the whole range of telecommunication systems, their principles, technology, performance characteristics and uses. It particularly takes account of the advances in digital transmission and exchange switching techniques and of the corresponding developments in computer applications and intercommunication, but the earlier chapters provide the classical foundations of telecommunications. The progress towards the complete integration of commercial and business information services with established telegraph and telephone services and modern networking techniques is duly explained. The final chapters describe significant developments such as cable television, direct broadcasting by satellite, high-definition television, optic fibre systems, and mobile radio systems. In essence, the book offers a solid introduction to the technological basis of information technology. The depth and breadth of treatment provide a suitable first course for technician and sixth-form students and sufficient insight for many business and management students."; previous owner's name on title page; folding creases to top corner of page117/8; otherwise a neat & clean copy; 153 pages plus index.
