ISDN Design : A Practical Approach
The integrated services digital network (ISDN) is a technology for integrating telephone and data communications into the same network system. Implementation requires a massive overhaul and upgrade of the existing network system, and thus is likely to produce a multibillion-dollar market in the coming decade. In addition to explaining ISDN concepts and terminology, the author, a designer of ISDN ICs for Siemens Corporation, describes design implementations of ISDN systems and hardware. Also covered are US, European, and Japanese government standards for ISDN implementation. This is a "one-stop" guide to ISDN theory, standards, software and implementation of ISDN systems and hardware. Both the US and international standards are covered. Written by an experienced telecommunications engineer, it provides you with the latest information on ISDN.

Praise for the Casebound Edition: "The nicest aspect of Steve's book is that he doesn't hesitate to stop along the way to familiarize his reader with the practical aspects of telecommunications design, such as A/D and D/A conversion, pulse code modulation, and even the transmission characteristics of multilayer printed ciruit boards. Where he feels it appropriate, he describes what type of lab equipment could be used to monitor or troubleshoot ISDN design." --Vmebus Systems
