Book Description

Cabling is one of the fastest changing technologies, and Data, Voice and Video Cabling, 3rd Edition, has been updated to address all the latest developments in premises cabling, including technologies and applications in copper, fiber, and wireless cabling. This text is organized to aid in the understanding of cabling, by following a logical format that covers background information on communications systems and media first, and then delves into more detailed discussions on each media type: copper, wireless, and fiber. Separating the key concepts into specific sections also helps to minimize confusion between the unique installation practices among the different technologies. Within each section, topics progress from the basics to components, installation, and testing to assist in the development of individual skills. This book also provides readers with important background and resources regarding the most recent cabling standards, which are an integral part of this fast-paced industry.

From the Author

Writing a technical book on such a complex technical subject is not easy. It's difficult to include enough technical detail to provide background but not so much that you confuse most readers. Having taught many courses on this subject, we have a good idea of what is relevant to cover and what students want and need to know. We have tried to include the relevant material, arrange it in a logical manner, and write in a style that is both understandable and enjoyable. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently Writtten Nov. 1 2001
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be written in a way that can be understood easily by the common "Joe". I've read many books on this subject and found that I wish I would have started with this one to begin with. It lays out the foundations of the infrastructure field in a descriptive and understandable way. Excellent choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instructors reveiw Dec 21 2000
Format:Paperback
I have been teaching fibre optics (Canadian Spelling for fiber) and communications for a number of years now, and I have read and used most every book available on the subject. I have been able to get something pertinent out of all of them. I have been using "Data, Voice and Video Cabling for some time now. The majority of the time my students are offered these books, not as a requirement of the course, but as a an option. (They are supplied during the course free of charge.)
Recently a class involved in an extensive training course asked about Homework. I suggested reading the issued text books by the next morning. (Big mistake) The next AM, I was inundated with questions and ideas about communications cabling. Further, I sold 12 of the VD&V books immediately. Most of my people had spent many hours reading over and reveiwing all required reading. These students were all eminently qualified instructors in a Communications, train-the-trainer course.
Many people assume that they can learn everything from books without the benifit of formal instruction. An unfortunate mistake. I have to deal with this attitude on a daily basis. However if you want to be close to this assumption, try this book. Always keep an open mind and try to refrain from the negativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and helpful book Dec 21 2000
Format:Paperback
This book is probably the best book on communications cabling I have seen. It covers copper cabling and fiber in different sections which makes it less confusing. It has lots of good pictures on how to actually install the cables.

2.0 out of 5 stars Data, Voice, and Video Cabling Nov. 21 2001
Format:Paperback
Very dissappointing. The video cabling section didn't discuss splitters, taps, attenuators, modulators,signal loss and many other areas of video installation. The other sections were somewhat better but also lacking in depth. I've learned more from reading the appendixes in the Leviton Catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction July 11 2006
By neontea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is easy to read and covers most topics in a logical easy to follow format. I am a architect and needed a good starting point for understanding cabling installation and various types of low voltage wiring systems (voice, data, CCTV, security). The author emphasizes that this book is meant for practical application, but he does provides good coverage of basic theories without being like an engineering textbook. The discussion of how fiber-optics are transmitted was very helpful. If one already knows the basics, this book may not be useful but I found it a good overview of the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars outdated July 14 2013
By Ms. E. Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Save your money. Outdated and useless. It doesn't help anyone. Read it from cover to cover and found that none of it applied to anything going on in todays world. Waste of my money and my time. Still looking for something that speaks to the needs of todays world with the products that are available to the homeowner in today's market and that explains from step one (the very basics of that product) to completion and adaptability.

This isn't it.
