During this publication, Optical Wavelength department Multiplexing (WDM) is approached from a strictly functional and application-oriented standpoint. in response to the features and constraints of recent fiber-optic elements, delivery structures and fibers, the text provides suitable ideas of thumb and sensible tricks for expertise choice, WDM procedure and hyperlink dimensioning, and likewise for network-related facets corresponding to wavelength project and resilience mechanisms. real 10/40 Gb/s WDM structures are thought of, and a preview of the upcoming a hundred Gb/s platforms and applied sciences for even better bit charges is given as well.
- Considers WDM from ULH spine (big photo view) down to PON entry (micro view).
- Includes all major telecom and datacom applications.
- Provides the proper history for state of the art and next-gen systems.
- Offers practical instructions for process / hyperlink engineering.
