Wiley Survival Guide in Global Telecommunications: Signaling Principles, Protocols, and Wireless Systems provides a rapid introduction to the whole field of telecom technologies and will provide a consistent starting point for further study for the diverse set of interested populations, which the author differentiates into the following five categories: the rare telecom generalists, who can conceptually grasp the full picture; the greater number of individuals who are technical contributors, scientists, and engineers who concentrate on top-level applications; the majority of end users and consumers, professionals and private; the population of some underdeveloped countries who rarely or never use any of these technologies.

The book provides a comprehensive approach to telecom accessible to a broad audience. Each chapter concludes with a summary and exercises with solutions in some cases. Advanced equations requiring math background to appear only in the Appendix, and references are limited to books and review papers deemed accessible to the book’s intended broad audience.

EMMANUEL DESURVIRE has been involved in optical telecommunications for nearly twenty years, starting with a PhD work on Raman fiber amplifiers at Thomson-CSF in 1983, followed by post-doctoral research at Stanford University. He then joined AT&T Bell Laboratories for five years, where he led the early investigation and development of erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA). For his pioneering contributions to EDFAs, he received several national and international awards including the 1994 Prize from the International Commission for Optics and the 1998 Benjamin Franklin Medal in engineering. After a two-year professorship at Columbia University, he joined Alcatel where he conducted research on long-haul soliton transmission and all-optical regeneration, then 40Gbit/s systems development. He also created and directed a corporate program to foster synergies between experts and promote innovation. An IEEE Fellow, he has authored or coauthored more than 200 technical publications, four books, and over thirty patents.
