CTNS Study Guide and companion reference textbook.

Telecom, Datacom and Networking for Non-Engineers is the study guide and companion reference textbook for the TCO Certified Telecommunications Network Specialist (CTNS) telecommunications certification.

This book is ideal as a companion study guide while taking the courses, and will serve as an invaluable day-to-day reference in the future.  It can also be used for self-study, delivering the core knowledge needed in telecommunications today: fundamental concepts and jargon, the PSTN, wireless telecommunications, the OSI model and Layers, Ethernet, IP packets, IP addresses, networks and routers, MPLS, carrier networks and carrier services.

Designed for non-Engineers, this comprehensive book explains telecom and networks in plain English: the jargon, buzzwords, mainstream technologies and services, standard practices, and most importantly, the underlying ideas… and how it all fits together.
