"At Collin College, we conducted an exhaustive search for the right content for the new Convergence Technology Center (CTC). LIDO Telecommunications Essentials eLearning is the most up-to-date, comprehensive resource I have ever seen for telecommunications and networking training. The quality of information is outstanding."
The elearning series has passed my scrutiny with flying colors. I think one of the student comments really hit the nail on the head … “…get rid of the text book and go with eLearning, it’s the future! First I had Cisco and then LIDO I hope other courses soon begin to do the same thing”

“I strongly recommend the LIDO eLearning experience for companies, large and small, whose staff or clients demand the very best. Combining state-of-the-art web technologies with content from the book and elsewhere creates a most impressive 24x7 Multimedia Experience"

" I found that virtual labs are a great thing in simulation and no one else has done anything like this .”

“The flexibility of the course is one of the main benefits. It allowed me to study where and when I wanted, but it was more than just that. The course is useful, practical and challenging. The module was well paced and pitched at a level which allowed me to learn quickly and in depth. It gives a very good grounding for me and has developed my understanding of the telecommunications industry.”

“Goleniewski's Telecommunications Essentials sets the stage by discussing forward-looking applications that are made possible by advances in telecommunications technology, including embedded devices, intelligent wearables, intelligent robot squads, and many others. This initial discussion is quite motivating for students and makes them eager to learn about various networking technologies which are covered quite well in the rest of the book. The 1st edition (2003) was already a great book for teaching telecommunications essentials, and it is clear that the 2nd edition brings us up to the present and is a remarkable treatment of the topic.”
— Dr. Lundy Lewis, Chair of the Department of Information Technology, Southern New Hampshire University
"The book covers not just the fundamentals of telecommunications, but it easily guides the readers through the wide variety of technical details of next-generation network services, converged network architectures and technologies. Lillian’s elegant and clear style of presentation makes the book an excellent reference source for system developers as well as telecommunications system designers to understand the current and emerging technologies that support business applications."
— Dr. Tibro Gyires, Professor, Illinois State University, School of Information Technology
“In this updated and expanded edition of her excellent telecommunications primer, Lili explains in just the right detail everything you need to know to become fluent in this most important and fascinating industry. Besides including a satisfying amount of expert technical detail, the book also discusses equally crucial aspects of how communications technology affects society, culture, and politics. Electronic communications is changing the world for the better; learn from Lili’s expertise how you, too, can participate in the revolution.”
—Steve Riley, senior security strategist, Microsoft Corporation
“The book you hold in your hand is a rarity. In more than thirty years of teaching, administration, and research in telecommunications, I have never found a single book that could serve these diverse areas. The search is over. Telecommunications Essentials is best-of-breed in telecommunications publishing and represents the most thorough, comprehensive, and forward-looking resource to date. Both student and practitioner alike will find the unique blend of introductory and advanced material a ‘one-stop-shop.’ If it was a movie, this book would receive two thumbs up!”
—Dr. Art St. George, CTO, Cerelink (previously manager of advanced technologies, University of New Mexico)
“This is an excellent reference book on telecommunications. It’s up-to-date on the latest technology, it’s comprehensive, and most of all, it’s easy to read and understand. Lili has the rare ability to explain very complex subjects well. If you need a good reference book on telecommunications, I would start with this.”
