Optical Network Design And Planning
Optical Network Design and Planning
Telecommunications carriers have begun to upgrade their networks with state-of-the-art optical equipment, referred to as optical-bypass technology. The ramifications of this technology are manifold, affecting the architecture, operation, and economics of the network, all of which are covered in this book. The book is oriented towards practical implementation in metro and backbone networks, taking advantage of the author’s experience with commercial equipment and carrier networks.
From the reviews:
"This is … nicely written tutorial book devoted to optical networking. … I recommend it to specialists working in companies planning to switch to full optical networks.... Also, graduate students will benefit from using it... " (Piotr Cholda, ACM Computing Reviews, April, 2009)
“This is my favorite book on optical network design and planning. It is written in an easy- to -follow approach that starts with basics such as optical network elements, routing, regeneration, wavelength assignment, grooming and ramps up to take on advanced and timely bundle of technology such as shared mesh protection, flexible optical network, and dynamic optical network with emphasis on software – defined networking.” (Mazen Khaddam, Principal Lead Strategic Network Scientist & Architect,...
