Mobile and stationary next-generation networks that access the photonic core are destined to become as ubiquitous as traditional telephone networks. These networks must efficiently provide adequate network quality to multimedia applications with high bandwidth and strict quality-of-service requirements, as well as seamlessly integrate mobile and fixed architectures. Today's engineering students must be properly prepared to meet the challenges of next-generation network development and deployment.

Featuring contributions from top industrial experts and academic professors, this authoritative work provides a comprehensive introduction to next-generation networks. It explains wireless networks such as wireless local area networks (WLAN), wireless personal area networks (WPAN), wireless access, 3G/4G cellular, and RF transmission, as well as optical networks like long-haul and metropolitan networks, optical fiber, photonic devices, and VLSI chips. Rather than focusing on heavy math or physical details, this resource explores how the technology is being used. It describes access and transport network layer technologies while also discussing the network and services aspects.

Chapter coverage includes:

Fiber-wireless networks: technologies, architectures, and future challenges

Packet backhaul network

Point-to-point microwave backhaul

Fourth-generation broadband: paving the road to Gbit/s with copper

Dynamic bandwidth allocation in EPON and GPON

Next-generation ethernet passive optical networks: 10G-EPON

Power line communications and smart grids

Signaling for multimedia conferencing in 4G: architecture, evaluation, and issues

Self-coexistence and security in cognitive radio networks

Mobile WiMAX

UWB personal area networks-MIMO extensions

Next-generation integrated metropolitan-access network: technology integration and wireless convergence

Resilient burst ring: a novel technology for the next-generation metropolitan area networks

Filled with illustrations and practical examples from industry, this book will be invaluable to engineers and researchers in industry and academia, as well as senior undergraduate and graduate students, marketing and management staff, photonics physicists, and chip designers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Intended as a preview of cutting edge technologies designed to deal with the ever increasing demand for network bandwidth, this collection of twenty-four essays presents scholarship on several types of emerging high-speed network technologies. Divided into sections covering access and backhaul networks, wireline technologies, wireless and spectrum management, metropolitan core, storage and area networks and photonic component technology, specific topics discussed include fiber-wireless network, packet backhaul systems, passive optical networks, mobile wimax, ROADM and radio-frequency transmitters. Appropriate for electronics and communications engineers and high level graduate students, contributors to this work include academics from a variety of universities around the world as well as industry experts in computer networking, fiber optics and telephony." (Reference and Research Book News, February 2011)
