Description

The responsibilities of the system engineer are many and varied, especially as they relate to facility design and construction. Successful execution of these responsibilities requires an understanding of the underlying technologies, the applicable quality standards, and the proper methods for achieving them. The Communications Facility Design Handbook is dedicated to providing and supporting that understanding. It examines the tasks and functions of the system engineer and establishes a foundation for designing, installing, operating, and maintaining audio, video, computer, and radio frequency systems and facilities.

Unique in its scope and its approach, The Communications Facility Design Handbook describes the important steps required to take a project from basic design to installation and completion. From the fundamental principles of electronics to details on wiring, from budget analysis to safety considerations, this is your one-stop reference for planning, building, renovating, and operating all types of electronics facilities.
