This site is provided as a gathering place for Telecom resources that you would commonly find in any other library. There will be reference materials listed for Telecommunications industry use, as well as links to related areas and sites on the internet.  It's our hope to be able to build an internet database library of cross-referenced circuits and CLLI codes which will be available to technicians and telephony engineers as required.  Please feel free to forward your comments regarding the feasibility of this undertaking.
The "dictionary" portion has been offered to assist those who might run across an acronym or phrasing which is new to them, and provide a better understanding of the term or use of a phrase. It is a compilation of information gathered from various sources and personnel, Newton's Telecom Dictionary and various Internet sites related to the Telecom Industry
If there are any comments, concerns or contributions you are interested in making, please give us your feedback.
