This text provides a unified, cross disciplinary treatment of fiber optic networks. Rather than focusing on point-to-point fibre optic links, this reference looks at the more modern issues of fibre optic network links. Figures, problems, pictures of real devices, and diagrams of real systems supplement the text. The book is designed for communications research and development professionals, especially those involved with fibre optics.
