Overview

Transmission-Efficient Design and Management of Wavelength-Routed Optical Networks is a comprehensive treatment of the impact of transmission impairments on the design and management of wavelength-routed optical networks. It considers mesh-type network topologies and presents efficient algorithms and protocols for cost-effective deployment.
Starting with transparent networks, this work focuses on power implications such as cross-connect design, device allocation problems, and management issues. In this all-optical model, a power-efficient design space, based on reduction in overall cost and ease of network management, is presented. This design concept, motivates various switch architectures and different optimization problems. Problems motivated by this design concept are addressed from both their theoretical and experimental aspects. After that, the book departs from pure transparent networks and allows for signal regeneration at some strategic locations in the network. Efficient design algorithms and signaling protocols are proposed which take advantage of the non-homogeneous nature of optical resources.
Transmission-Efficient Design and Management of Wavelength-Routed Optical Networks is an invaluable resource targeted towards practitioners, researchers, and students from telecommunications, computer science, engineering, and networking with interest in the realistic deployment of optical networks in the metro and the backbone.
