Telecommunication is achieved through electrical and optical signals carried in some fashion from sender to receiver. To understand the procedures involved, the equipment employed, and the effects new technologies are likely to have on them requires an appreciation of the basic engineering science associated with telecommunication facilities. This includes the properties of voice, data, and video signals; the elements of transmission and digital switching; concepts in traffic theory, software, and protocols; and the principles of operation as well as the methods of construction of electronic and optical components and devices. These subjects are organized into three sections devoted to signals, control, and microstructures.
