Overview

*Clear explanations of SONET (Synchronous Optical Network),the industry standard for high speed transmission over optical fiber,for the non-engineer

*Provides detailed SONET case studies and business models

*Includes coverage of DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) and WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing THE HOW'S AND WHY'S AND APPLICATIONS ON SONET/SDH—MINUS THE JARGON

Intended for use in broadband ISDN and ATM networks,SONET (Synchronous Optical Network) and SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) have taken on a life of their own. As fiber optic cable becomes the standard for data transmission,telcos and other carriers are deploying more high-speed SONET/SDH technologies to support leased-line services such as DS-1 and DS-3. In search of ever-faster data speeds,leading corporations such as Boeing,AT&T,and Disney are moving their private global networks to a SONET/SDH infrastructure.

THIS BOOK IS A MUST-READ IF—


* Your're at the point where technology turns to business and shoot-or-pass decisions get made


* Staying on top of what's hot in communications is your job


* You need to understand the growth and workings of SONET/SDH,but don't have time for MIT


* You want to compare cots,potentials,and performance of SONET/SDH with other technologies


* You'd like business-model case studies of DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) and WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) that make sense


* You sell,market,or manage for a firm that develops SONET/SDH systems


* You make career choices in telecom,Internet service,networking,or the upper echelons of any large business


* You invest in communicationsequipment makers,service providers,or applications creators


* You're a curious technophile who can't get enough insider details on new communications strategies,methods,and trends


* You see that there's more sun in the winner's circle than in the also-ran column The easiest way to size up SONET/SDH for your network—or simply to better understand these rapidly expanding technologies—SONET/SDH DEMYSTIFIED is the ideal shortcut to the front edge of high-speed networking.
