Electrical Engineering / Telecommunications Engineering Networks for Synchronization, CCS 7, and ISDN Standards, Protocols, Planning, and Testing Practical and up to date, Engineering Networks for Synchronization, CCS 7, and ISDN focuses on three key elements of modern telecommunication networks: network synchronization, CCITT common channel signaling system no. 7 (CCS 7), and narrowband ISDN. ISDN cannot exist without CCS 7, and CCS 7 cannot exist without network synchronization. Until now, information on these three closely linked areas was scattered among sources, but this book provides a valuable one–stop guide to all these subjects. Key features of immediate relevance include:
  • Coherent coverage of basic concepts
  • In–depth treatment of CCS 7 and ISDN protocols
  • Detailed practical guidelines on engineering and planning telecommunication networks for synchronization, CCS 7, and ISDN
  • Comprehensive discussion on testing and validation
  • Extensive coverage of international, North American, and European standards
  • Timing in SONET and SDH
In view of the extensive deployment of CCS 7 and the fast–paced growth of ISDN in telecommunication networks throughout the world, this valuable resource serves as a timely reference and guide for practicing engineers, network operators, service providers, administrators, and consultants. For educators and students, it provides an exposure to practical aspects of modern telecommunication networks. About the Series The IEEE Telecommunications Handbook Series consists of handy references to the practical information used by technical specialists within the telecommunications industry. These books have been specifically designed to provide technical practitioners in the three basic fields of the telecommunications industry inside plant, outside plant, and administration and regulatory with practical day–to–day engineering and technical information on telecommunications systems.
