Description

Optical Networks provides a comprehensive all-in-one text for beginning graduate as well as final-year undergraduate students, and also serves well for R&D engineers to quickly refresh the basics and then move on to emerging topics.

  • Presents the whole subject with a natural flow from optical networks overview and technologies (Part I), to first-generation optical networks using single-wavelength transmission (Part II), next-generation WDM networks (Part III), and some selected contemporary as well as emerging topics on optical networks (Part IV)
  • Pedagogical presentation of underlying concepts and analytical models, with minimal reference to background material
  • Inclusion of the first-generation optical networks
  • Inclusion of several contemporary and emerging topics, not discussed so far in the other books
  • Three appendices present fundamental mathematical tools in a lucid manner: linear programming, optical receiver noise processes and queuing theory
