Abstract
As the use of information gathered across communications networks becomes all-pervasive in the office, factory and home, a basic understanding of the underlying technology is increasingly important. Communications and Information Systems explains the basic technology of communications and information systemsproviding a comprehensive, accessible source of information without resorting to explanations that are either trivial or misleading. The book is ideally suited for university courses that introduce communications and information systems, particularly to non-technical students. Electrical engineers and computer scientists may also find this book useful, however, as a complement to the mathematical explanations of communications and information systems technology emphasised in university engineering courses. Topics covered include: Communications systems model, analogue and digital signals, source coding, channel coding, encryption, modulation, multiplexing, multiple access and frequency spreading, transmitters and receivers, transmission media, radio wave propagation, antennas, types of communication systems, networking, internetworking, mobile communications systems, satellite communications systems, information management, information systems, operating systems, software, and databases. A complete presentation package is available for instructors who prescribe this book as a course text.
