Convergence of Wireless, Wireline, and Photonics Next Generation Networks / Edition 1

Mobile and stationary next-generation networks that access the photonic core are destined to become as ubiquitous as traditional telephone networks. These networks must efficiently provide adequate network quality to multimedia applications with high bandwidth and strict quality-of-service requirements, as well as seamlessly integrate mobile and fixed architectures. Today's engineering students must be properly prepared to meet the challenges of next-generation network development and deployment.

Featuring contributions from top industrial experts and academic professors, this authoritative work provides a comprehensive introduction to next-generation networks. It explains wireless networks such as wireless local area networks (WLAN), wireless personal area networks (WPAN), wireless access, 3G/4G cellular, and RF transmission, as well as optical networks like long-haul and metropolitan networks, optical fiber, photonic devices, and VLSI chips. Rather than focusing on heavy math or physical details, this resource explores how the technology is being used. It describes access and transport network layer technologies while also discussing the network and services aspects.

Chapter coverage includes:

Fiber-wireless networks: technologies, architectures, and future challenges

Packet backhaul network

Point-to-point microwave backhaul

Fourth-generation broadband: paving the road to Gbit/s with copper

Dynamic bandwidth allocation in EPON and GPON

Next-generation ethernet passive optical networks: 10G-EPON

Power line communications and smart grids

Signaling for multimedia conferencing in 4G: architecture, evaluation, and issues

Self-coexistence and security in cognitive radio networks

Mobile WiMAX

UWB personal area networks-MIMO extensions

Next-generation integrated metropolitan-access network: technology integration and wireless convergence

Resilient burst ring: a novel technology for the next-generation metropolitan area networks

Filled with illustrations and practical examples from industry, this book will be invaluable to engineers and researchers in industry and academia, as well as senior undergraduate and graduate students, marketing and management staff, photonics physicists, and chip designers.
