Scope: Based on the author's successful previous book, 'Common-channel Signalling', this fully revised edition comprehensively covers the principles of contemporary signalling systems, including System no. 7 and Digital Subscriber Systems, with an in-depth examination of their architecture. from basic architectures through to broadband and internetworking. Chapters are devoted to signalling for mobile, intelligent and private networks, interworking and network management, as well as Internet protocols.
"This is a first-class reference book, tutorial and discussion. The author is an expert who writes well, and it will become an important addition to the library of those who seek to understand how communications networks work." Electronics & Communication Engineering Journal, April 2001
