It provides the reader with an easy to follow explanation of the components of a fibre optic system e.g. cables, connectors LED's, transmitters, receivers, couplers, etc without confusing the layman with mathematical formulae.
The book also explains basic design of optical links plus an introduction to testing techniques.
Overall an excellent book for the layman and student alike. Throughly recommended and deserves all 5 stars
Recommended seller. Delivery did take some time but was in line with the dates provided so was expected.
Book could have been described more fully as to its condition. I did know I was buying a used book but did not expect there to be as many personal notes hand written in the margins.
Overall I would deal with again.
