Provides an account that is both detailed and up to date of WDM optical network systems
Since 2010, there have been considerable advancements made in optical networking. There has been a significant shift toward an all-optical network in optical networking as a result of a variety of new technologies and applications, which has brought about this transformation. This e-book provides a significant amount of attention on the network concepts, technologies, and methodologies that will not only withstand the test of time but also help in comprehending and constructing advanced optical network systems.
The first chapter of Optical WDM Networks: From Static to Elastic Networks (PDF) lays a foundation for the subsequent chapters by presenting an overview of optical networking, the various network architectures, fundamental concepts, and an overview of the various network structures that will be discussed in subsequent chapters. It begins with an overview of the enabling technologies and the hardware devices that are found at the physical layer, and then moves on to present a more in-depth description of the network in the chapters that follow. The following sections provide an in-depth analysis of the three fundamental network structures: static broadcast networks, wavelength-routed networks, and electronic/optical logically routed networks. These three types of networks cover the characteristics of optical networks in access, metropolitan area, and long-haul reach, respectively. The big picture of networking, network control and administration, impairment management, and survivability are all topics covered in this article. The future technologies of flex-grid and software-defined optical networking are discussed in the book's last chapter.
