SONET or Ethernet?

How to extend broadband through Metro Area Networks—that's the question many carriers are asking. Many are answering "SONET" - but that's just the beginning of the questions. This expert guide offers serious help with the challenges of implementing SONET to push the information highway nearer the last mile.

SONET Solutions for MANs

The perfect resource for evaluating and deploying SONET as a MAN solution, communications experts Daniel Minoli's and Peter Johnson's SONET-Based Metro Area Networks can help you sort out your options and put your choices into action. This detailed guide helps you build business models, review protocols, contrast costs and features, and design and deploy next-generation platforms.

Eight insight-packed chapters help you:

  • Review all emerging metro protocols and their interactions
  • Decide with confidence on a cell or packet-switched network
  • Choose ATM or point-to-point
  • Achieve new features with enhanced SONET and multi-lambda rings
  • Apply in-depth answers on GMPLS (Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching)
  • Contend with complicated issues such as municipal-owned infrastructure
  • Discover next-generation design approaches and business models for real-world deployments
  • Solve conventional and urgent post-9/11 security issues

MAKE SENSE OF COMPLEX TECHNOLOGIES AND BURGEONING MARKETS

Don't step off the cliff without a parachute. This book is a survival tool for those planning, designing, and building architectures for Municipal Area Networks.
