Description

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.

Key Features

  • Includes emerging technologies such as Infiniband, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and MPLS Optical Switching
  • Describes leading edge commercial products, including LEAF and MetroCore fibers, dense wavelength multiplexing, and Small Form Factor transceiver packages
  • Covers all major industry standards, often written by the same people who designed the standards themselves
  • Includes an expanded listing of references on the World Wide Web, plus hard-to-find references for international, homologation, and type approval requirements
  • Convenient tables of key optical datacom parameters and glossary with hundreds of definitions and acronyms
  • Industry buzzwords explained, including SAN, NAS, and MAN networking
  • Datacom market analysis and future projections from industry leading forecasters

Readership

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)
