    Telecommunication Switching, Traffic and Networks fills the gap between texts on telecommunications that only treat networks in a cursory manner, and the advanced texts that are too specialized for undergraduates. It proceeds from an introduction to telecommunication networks through the evolution of switching systems from electromechanical systems, to stored-program-controlled digital systems and future broadband systems. The treatment of teletraffic theory includes both lost-call and queuing systems. This book is essential reading for final year undergraduates and M.Sc. students in departments of electrical and electronic engineering.
