Introduces all aspects of digital communications, emphasizing voice applications and digitization, digital transmission and switching, network synchronization, control and analysis. Non-technical in the traditional (analytical) sense of communications theory, it stresses the application and operational aspects of communications and system design. Topical discussions in this Second Edition explore new terminology, the advantages and disadvantages of using digital voice networks, the functions and uses of digital radio and fiber optical transmission systems and an analysis of traffic patterns in the digital communications network. New equations and traffic tables, a revised glossary of terms, an up-to-date bibliography and an expanded index enhance and complete this book.
