Totally up to date for the 2020s, the course materials for Teracom’s famous Course 101 Broadband, Telecom, Datacom and Networking for Non-Engineers, augmented with additional topics and bound in this one volume, bring you consistency, completeness and unbeatable value.
Telecom 101 covers the core knowledge set required in the telecommunications business today: the technologies, the players, the products and services, jargon and buzzwords, and most importantly, the underlying ideas... and how it all fits together.
Our approach can be summed up with a simple philosophy: Start at the beginning. Progress in a logical order. Build one concept on top of another. Finish at the end. Avoid jargon.
Speak in plain English.
We fill in the gaps, build a solid base of knowledge, put a structure in place and show how everything fits together... knowledge and understanding that lasts a lifetime.
