In this book, Optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) is approached from a strictly practical and application-oriented point of view. Based on the characteristics and constraints of modern fiber-optic components, transport systems and fibers, the text provides relevant rules of thumb and practical hints for technology selection, WDM system and link dimensioning, and also for network-related aspects such as wavelength assignment and resilience mechanisms. Actual 10/40 Gb/s WDM systems are considered, and a preview of the upcoming 100 Gb/s systems and technologies for even higher bit rates is given as well.

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:
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.About the Author:
