For all students in courses on optical networking or next-generation Internet and telecommunications technology.Optical networking is enabling dramatic improvements in IT infrastructure, which will in turn transform the Internet and the way individuals and organizations utilize it. This package brings together two thorough, authoritative, up-to-the-minute guides to optical networking. Essential Guide to Optical Networks, by Network Magazine Editor David Greenfield, presents an easy-to-understand, non-mathematical introduction to optical networking technologies, infrastructures, trends, and applications. Next Generation Optical Networks, by Peter Tomsu and Christian Schmutzer, is a comprehensive guide to the new "IP+optical" networking technologies that are likely to transform optical networking, improving manageability, flexibility, and performance. Together, this package offers the most comprehensive introduction to advanced optical networking more
