The definitive guide to home and small business installation -- extensions, modems and telephone systems.

Steve Roberts provides a practical guide to the installation of telephone wiring in Telephone Installation Handbook. The coverage of his book ranges from the simple, single extension socket to the Private Automative Branch Exchange (PABX), with the necessary tools, test equipment and materials needed by installers described throughout.

The text is supported by an extensive glossary of technical terms, abbreviations and acronyms. Further appendices give supplier addresses and useful contacts, as well as providing circuit diagrams and descriptions of a number of telephone-related electronic devices.

This book arms you with knowledge of regulations and techniques to help plan and implement telephone installations. Above all, this is a practical book for those intending to make a living from installing extensions and systems, for facilities managers responsible for workplace systems, for those who need to communicate effectively with telephone engineers, and for those who prefer to do their own work around the house.

The new edition has been updated throughout, and now includes extended information on ISDN and also a new chapter covering CAT5 cabling -- its implementation and integration.
