Product Description


This book would be an excellent reference for advanced undergraduate students and graduate researchers, as well as professional engineers.   (Optics & Photonics News, 6 June 2014)

From the Back Cover

A practical, application–oriented guide to state–of–the–art and next–gen WDM systems and networks

Written by an author team with unrivaled experience in both technical research and commercial applications, this book treats Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) from a purely practical, application–oriented point of view. Working from the ULH backbone down to the level of PON access, the authors discuss the major characteristics and constraints of modern fiber–optic components, transport systems, and fibers and their interrelation in state–of–the–art WDM systems and networks. In addition to considering major telecom and datacom applications including a range of specific enterprise and inter–data–center applications the authors provide a fascinating and informative look forward at next–gen systems.

Featuring a clear, accessible narrative and hundreds of equations and diagrams, Wavelength Division Multiplexing provides timely coverage of:

  • System/link engineering with practical guidelines
  • Expert rules of thumb on technology selection and link dimensioning
  • 10/40 Gb/s WDM systems with real–world examples
  • Emerging 100 Gb/s systems and technologies
  • Developments in system access (passive WDM, WDM–PON)
  • Coherent vs. non–coherent high–capacity transport
  • Energy efficiency in WDM transport
  • WDM system and network monitoring
  • Protection and resilience techniques

Wavelength Division Multiplexing is a valuable working resource for engineers in transport–related departments at network operators and large enterprises. It also is a valuable reference for technicians in need of a guide to current and next–gen fiber–optic transport systems and networks.
