Cabling infrastructure and networking technologies are the main focus of this book that features just enough applications and access technologies coverage to illustrate the trade-offs between the options. Residential Networks presents a "soup to nuts" examination of home networking, from physical layer transmission issues to different types of networks and present-day applications such as voice telephony, data networking, entertainment networks, and home automation. Expansive cabling coverage addresses such important areas as planning and design, installation, and testing, while networking technologies such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and FireWire are also surveyed.
