Product Description

Review

'Students, technicians and professional readers could benefit from this publication... For example, cable installation test or field service engineers, software engineers, electronic engineers, avionic engineers... Simply written in an easily accessible style which does not put the reader off and covers all of the basic topics in an appropriate and logical order.' Mike James, Westland Helicopters Ltd "Tricker gives you a good overview of fiber optics, and he wraps up the book with useful appendixes that cover technical terms and fiber optic standards...and the price is more reasonable than that of most technical books..." TechOnline Magazine, May 2003 If you need a primer in fiber optics, this book is for you...a fine introduction to the topic explaining theoretical and practical aspects in terms you can quickly absorb. - Test & Measurement World. May 2003

From the Publisher

Topical areas such as optoelectronics in LANs and WANs, cable TV systems, and the global fibre-optic highway make this book essential reading for anyone who needs to keep up with the technology of modern data communications.

This is an extremely informative, non-mathematical and eminantly readable introduction to fiber optics that will appeal to practising electronic and telecommunications engineers, technicians and students.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Alice Higginson on 1 Dec 2002
Format: Paperback
When I first saw this book I thought “Oh not another book on Fibre Optics” but even though the second chapter goes a little too deep into the theory and mathematics for my liking, the historical background in the preceding Chapter more than made up for it!! I also liked the chapters describing the various types of fibre and future developments forseen for this technology. The only thing that (slightly) annoyed me was the misspelling of fibre - but then the book might have been aimed at the American Market?

A book written for layman. And by layman? 7 Feb 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author trys to explain the technology to someone totally strange to this field in a simplified and sometimes technically incorrect way. Good for general readers. Senior high students, mightbe. Thinking a job in this field? either technical or not. Get a more technical and less-misleading title!
