Anyone got any book/lecture note recommendations for getting a concise introduction to telecommunications. Especially with regard to technologies associated with HFT.

Should admit, did not read the subject at all. First what I found seems to be good introduction:
"Queueing Theory with Applications to Packet Telecommunication" , Daigle J.N

Google the title, there is pdf.

more advanced set of lectures:
"Queueing Theory and Network Applications"
Yutaka Takahashi, Tuan Phung-Duc, Sabine Wittevrongel, Wuyi Yue

@nikol ive had a look and those books are essentially on queueing theory and not quite what i am looking for. Im looking for more about the different mediums of exchange of information.

Could you specify more concretely what you are looking for?

more like an overview of radio, satelites, telephones, internet, fiber optics, microwaves, .....

a bit like https://meanderful.blogspot.com/2017/05/lines-radios-and-cables-oh-my.html but more detailed.

I think you are looking for complete book/lectures for the discipline which does not exist. HFT type of communications require multidisciplinary approach. Further I will list items from your link for the summary:
- fast modems / signal transmitters: Google Cisco HFT. Also search for lectures about data acquisition in High Energy Physics.
- physics of fiber vs cable (analogue vs digital) vs radio vs laser etc: this is pure physics. Can be combined with above.
- geometry of Earth - cables, satellites, airplanes, balloons (LOON project by Google seem to be the most advanced here and I think this is the most interesting direction). Skip neutrino penetrating the Earth as you need large statistics (time) to validate the signal. Also, I recommend also skipping quantum transport as we are far from solution (if it works, everything else can be thrown into bin).

I understand that you search for a blend of multiple technologies which will deliver the most optimal solution. It looks like a search for the most fast and cheap logistic solution for multi-modal transportation of goods (out of curiosity, I am slowly building such model). So, you have to build a network map of technologies and distances which you have to optimize.

By the way LOON project reports that they managed to establish laser communication from balloon to balloon, which is quite an achievement because of instability of both balloons due to wind.

@nikol anything multidisplinary is instantly interesting

Look across the lines of my text and google-google or duckduckgo or ODP. (somehow rejected from DMOZ )

@nikol Im not quite sure what all these websites youve listed are good

Has anyone read https://www.amazon.co.uk/Telecommunications-Essentials-Second-Complete-Global/dp/0321427610/ref=dp_ob_title_bk ? Seems ok content

google: hft infrastructure latency
google: high frequency trading network architecture

etc etc

interesting:

https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en_us/solutions/industries/docs/finance/c22-658397-01_sOview.pdf


Marketing information from Cisco, Fujitsu etc. all these competing guys is an ultimate source of introductory information. They are competing and, therefore, bring to the eye of potential buyer the most relevant and dry info. The book you mentioned is for reference only (skip "Augmented reality" chapter for sure).

Quoted latencies from blog you have provided gives idea about the level of competition. Hard line is defined by speed of light in vacuum. Little increment is due to "curvature" of the cable, speed of light within matter (it is lower), time add-ons from switchers/transmitters, re-amplifiers (and "hell knows what")

When I graduated as nuclear physicist I remember having similar problem to recognize all that terminology around devices. The best source of information was marketing catalog from "CAEN". Their 10-15 pages were priceless.

maybe make a 'bold face' and call them.

I have written you a lot of info. Read it and reread and google. Curiosity will bring you far away, far beyond those 'introductory books'.

Good luck.

@nikol thats an interesting thing you say ("The book you mentioned is for reference only"). I always have difficulty working out when it is worth reading a book a priori to any need or just to google around.

"Stand up" and get mental picture of what is your goal. Visualize it. And then walk towards it. :)

from telecommunications point of view computer is one big switch :)

@pj its part of the wider telecommunications field
