About this book series

Dr. Tarek S. El-Bawab, who spearheaded the movement to gain accreditation for the telecommunications major is the series editor for Textbooks in Telecommunications. Please contact him at telbawab@ieee.org if you have interest in contributing to this series.

The Textbooks in Telecommunications Series:

Telecommunications have evolved to embrace almost all aspects of our everyday life, including education, research, health care, business, banking, entertainment, space, remote sensing, meteorology, defense, homeland security, and social media, among others. With such progress in Telecom, it became evident that specialized telecommunication engineering education programs are necessary to accelerate the pace of advancement in this field. These programs will focus on network science and engineering; have curricula, labs, and textbooks of their own; and should prepare future engineers and researchers for several emerging challenges.


The IEEE Communications Society’s Telecommunication Engineering Education (TEE) movement, led by Tarek S. El-Bawab, resulted in recognition of this field by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), November 1, 2014. The Springer’s Series Textbooks in Telecommunication Engineering capitalizes on this milestone, and aims at designing, developing, and promoting high-quality textbooks to fulfill the teaching and research needs of this discipline, and those of related university curricula. The goal is to do so at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and globally. The new series will supplement today’s literature with modern and innovative telecommunication engineering textbooks and will make inroads in areas of network science and engineering where textbooks have been largely missing. The series aims at producing high-quality volumes featuring interactive content; innovative presentation media; classroom materials for students and professors; and dedicated websites.

Book proposals are solicited in all topics of telecommunication engineering including, but not limited to: network architecture and protocols; traffic engineering; telecommunication signaling and control; network availability, reliability, protection, and restoration; network management; network security; network design, measurements, and modeling; broadband access; MSO/cable networks; VoIP and IPTV; transmission media and systems; switching and routing (from legacy to next-generation paradigms); telecommunication software; wireless communication systems; wireless, cellular and personal networks; satellite and space communications and networks; optical communications and networks; free-space optical communications; cognitive communications and networks; green communications and networks; heterogeneous networks; dynamic networks; storage networks; ad hoc and sensor networks; social networks; software defined networks; interactive and multimedia communications and networks; network applications and services; e-health; e-business; big data; Internet of things; telecom economics and business; telecom regulation and standardization; and telecommunication labs of all kinds.

Proposals of interest should suggest textbooks that can be used to design university courses, either in full or in part. They should focus on recent advances in the field while capturing legacy principles that are necessary for students to understand the bases of the discipline and appreciate its evolution trends. Books in this series will provide high-quality illustrations, examples, problems and case studies.
