From the cover: “Computer and telecommunication technologies are becoming increasingly convergent and the UK Post Office, in conjunction with the National Computing Centre Ltd has produced this Handbook as a contribution to a greater understanding of their interdependence by students of both disciplines.
Based on Post Office Data Communication Courses, the subjects covered in the Handbook are those which we have found from several years’ teaching experience to be the ones needed by the average student. The book should be of value to systems analysts, systems programmers and systems engineers, although it should also be a good reference for management and newcomers to computing.
Apart from giving particular attention to the facilities available in the UK and the Post Office’s role in data communications, the book provides an insight to the facilities available internationally.”
