Overview

Network manager's practical introduction to optical networking With cheaper bandwidth and greater robustness,optical networking components are looking increasingly tempting—perhaps even mandatory for maintaining your network's competitiveness. In Deploying Optical Networking Components,veteran communications consultant Gil Held utilizes language and terms already familiar to network managers — without overwhelming you with optical science — to help you:
* Understand the role of LEDs,lasers,single mode and multimode optical fiber and couplers and amplifiers
* Bridge the divide between conventional systems and optical upgrades
* Relate optical technologies to existing networks
* Evaluate optical components in the context of your existing infrastructure
* Apply practical integration and migration techniques in LANs,WANs,and other infrastructure
* Familiarize yourself with technical changes in performance measurement,system management,switching technology,support requirements,and other key challenges With cheaper bandwidth and greater robustness,optical networking components are looking increasingly tempting—perhaps even mandatory for maintaining your network's competitive edge. Here's how you get there from here,without being overwhelmed by optical science.

Optical technologies' advantages over copper have caught your attention. Now you're one of the many network professionals—enterprise and service provider alike—looking to answer that key question,"What's the impact on my network?" Optical Networking Components provides the help you need as you rethink system changes and update plans. Written specifically for networkmanagers and administrators by a veteran communications consultant,Gil Held's Optical Networking Components helps you:
*Understand the role of LEDs,lasers,single mode and multimode optical fiber and couplers and amplifiers
*Bridge the divide between conventional systems and optical upgrades
*Relate optical technologies to existing networks in language you already know
*Evaluate optical components in the context of your existing infrastructure
*Apply practical integration and migration techniques in LANs,WANs,and other infrastructure without deep optical theory
*Get familiar with technical changes in performance measurement,system management,switching technology,support requirements,and other key challenges When adding optical components to traditional data networks,plug-and-play is not an option. But with Gil Held's expert book,it's much easier to build and deploy your game plan.
