- Casimer DeCusatis, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Corporation
The Handbook includes chapters on all the major industry standards, quick reference tables, helpful appendices, plus a new glossary and list of acronyms. This practical handbook can stand alone or as a companion volume to DeCusatis: Fiber Optic Data Communication: Technological Advances and Trends (February 2002, ISBN: 0-12-207892-6), which was developed in tandem with this book.
The book is directed towards professionals working in the field as a desktop reference (P) or as a guide to designing and manufacturing equipment and planning optical networks (P), and technology managers or planners who want an understanding of how these products work together (P). It is also suitable for technical professionals with a related background who are crossing over from another field (S), undergraduate or graduate students in this field (S), or professors or university research scientists (S)
