Delmar Publishers (Albany, NY) has recently released Premises Cabling, which focuses on cabling installation. This 192-page paperback by Donald J. Sterling, Jr. details copper and fiber-optic cabling and associated issues. [Sterling also authors the Technician`s Guide to Fiber Optics, Second Edition, also from Delmar.--Ed.]
After exploring connectors and interconnection hardware, the book discusses installation procedures, looks at certifying the cabling system, and documenting and administering the cabling plant. Chapters on networks and building topologies are also included.
Premises Cabling concludes with appendixes on cabling specifications, abbreviations and acronyms, a glossary, cable color-coding and a bibliography. For ordering information, call (800) 347-7707. Major credit cards are accepted, and quantity discounts are available.
