The technical facts of many problems affecting telecommunication and computer networks haven’t changed since the author wrote his first book on the subject in 1982, but the equipment and network applications sure have, along with their solutions. And there’s a whole new generation of engineers, managers, and technicians who aren’t familiar with the past development and history of these networks, but who could benefit greatly from that knowledge. This is especially the case in the local area networking (LAN) environment and the backhaul networks that are being used to provide Wi-Fi and 5G wireless access. The information provided should be very helpful to those responsible for designing, installing, and maintaining very cost-effective, reliable, and high-performance computer and telecom networks. This is especially needed in the age of the Internet of Things, as well as understanding that you don’t have to use fiber optic cables in order to achieve these successful results.
