Top-notch advice on adopting DSL

DSL is exploding, with fifteen million fast Internet connections in 2001 and probably forty million more by 2003. The editors of DSL Prime, the weekly "industry bible," brief you on exactly what you need to know to put the technology to use. The book moves rapidly from the basics of the equipment through security, applications, and network management. With the authority of the industry's key periodical, Bourne and Burstein provide candid evaluations of the providers and manufacturers and offer technical managers a no-nonsense guide to make sound strategic decisions on DSL, reduce costs, and ensure a system that will run reliably and smoothly.
