Overview

A comprehensive introduction to optical networking: current solutions and emerging breakthroughs.

  • The authoritative, comprehensive guide to next-generation optical networking
  • Coverage includes DWDM, Optical-over-IP, MPLS, passive optical, ASON, and OLMP
  • Presents new techniques for maximizing bandwidth, simplifying provisioning, and controlling QoS
  • Includes a detailed review of current fiber systems, signaling schemes, and SONET/SDH standards

In Optical Networks: Third Generation Transport Systems, leading telecom consultant Uyless Black presents an authoritative introduction to the emerging technologies that will drive the next communications revolution. From MPLS to Optical-over-IP to the new Optical Link Management Protocol (OLMP), Black's expert explanations and practical insight will be invaluable to every professional building, deploying, or managing optical networks. Engineers new to the field will especially appreciate his review of current fiber systems, signaling, SONET/SDH standards, and how these technologies lay the foundation for tomorrow's 3G advances.

  • DWDM: Driving massive bandwidth increases through existing optical infrastructure
  • MPLS: understanding its role in today's networks and tomorrow's optical core
  • Controlling QoS in current and future optical networks
  • Network topologies and protection/restoration—including advanced passive optical systems
  • Optical routers, switching in optical Internets, and optical bandwidth-on-demand
  • ASON: Automating the routing and signaling of optical connections
  • OLMP: Simplifyiconfiguration and management of tomorrow's optical networks
  • Comparing ATM with IP in optical networks

Optical Networks: Third Generation Transport Systems is the first book to cover every key optical technology for building networks of unprecedented power, flexibility, and manageability.
