This is by far and away the best book for someone in the telecom field who works with these products on a daily basis. There is no other book that I have found that addresses these concepts in a clear and relevant manner. I work for AT&T and trust me, this book is on point.
It is also meaningful for someone interested in learning about telecom. The author starts the book by providing an overview of telecom and how it relates to modern technologies in use today.
Not only is the information extremely relevant and well written, the author is humorous and uses great real world examples to validate his points. A must read!!

This is an excellent overview of Telecom, Datacom, and Networking.
Eric Coll is an articulate, thoughtful technical writer with an obvious mastery of this challenging field, and he brings all his skill to bear in this book.
For such a broad technical coverage, the book avoids skipping over critical points, and provides an in-depth look as appropriate to allow you to put everything into proper perspective, and to relate how each technology works with the others.
There are a number of excellent analogies, some neat history, and overall, a simply excellent structure. Easy to read, memorable, and chock-full of information.
I hesitate to call books brilliant, but this is about as close to that as it comes.
Very, very highly recommended!
