Editorial Reviews

Covers recent advances in transport technology including synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH), asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) and optical network technology. Provides a picture of recent and future transport network technology trends, examines the technological details for network system development, and emphasizes the basic and fundamental ideas behind development techniques. Begins with an explanation of transport network layered architecture, and then elaborates on recently developed transport technologies in an attempt to elucidate the technology trends in telecommunication transport networks.
