"Demystifying ATM/ADSL" reduces the technical complexity of two emerging and related communications technologies to an understandable level for the non-communications professional. ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) and ADSL (digital signal line) technologies are presented in an introductory level to demystify these complex communications topics. While ATM and ADSL are given an in-depth treatment including detailed analysis of their components and inter-relationships, the technical concepts are presented using elementary engineering principles. "Demystifying ATM/ADSL" is ideally targeted for business managers, telecommunications technicians, and individuals in marketing, manufacturing, purchasing, and support functions of telecommunications companies who need a fundamental grounding in ATM and ADSL. The accompanying CD includes ATM training software.
