Editorial Reviews Review

Until recently, ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) was the butt of net-gurus' jokes, who claimed that it actually stood for "It Still Does Nothing". Now that ISDN is finally coming of age and being deployed internationally by telephone companies and others -- and promises to deliver high-speed data, audio, video, and real videoconferencing capabilities to homes and office -- everyone is beginning to realize that ISDN may in fact stand for "I Smell Dollars Now". As a former ISP employee who has dealt with telcos, I can honestly say that after reading this book, you might know more about ISDN than your service provider.


If you want to understand ISDN you have two choices: 1) buy this book or 2) marry someone who works at the phone company. The first will hold your interest a lot longer. Trust me. -- Scott Adams, Dilbert Cartoonist, and (former) Pacific Bell employee

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

28 of 31 people found the following review helpful By Jean-Christian Imbeault on October 13, 1999
Format: Paperback
Do not buy this book as it is out of date and the information it contains is no longer relevant.
This book is aimed at helping people set up an ISDN connection on their PC and showing them how to use some simple software applications such as CU-SeeMe. Nothing more.
It has no information on the internals of ISDN whatsoever and the information it contains is out of date. ("Cable modems are on the horizon . . .").
I can't beleive it even recomends using ISDN for a small business LAN!
