"This comprehensive book, which provides a succinct–as–possible glossary of the plethora of terms commonly used in communications, is destined to become an indispensable desk–side reference for engineers and others working in the area." ––Curtis Siller, Lucent Technologies
Are you sometimes overwhelmed by the overabundance of jargon encountered in technical books and articles? Hargrave′s Communications Dictionary is a treasure of simplified communications terms, definitions, acronyms, charts, equations, and a wealth of related information amassed over the author′s extensive engineering career. From ATM to Zone Paging, this volume includes over ten thousand definitions of key phrases that readers in industry, government, and academia need to understand. Many definitions incorporate basic tools for problem solving not found in other publications–such as drawings, graphs, charts, and references to IEEE standards.
