Tomorrow's "best-of-breed" networks will combine fiber optics with Internet protocols to deliver unprecedented performance and manageability. Next Generation Optical Networks is the first comprehensive guide to optical IP networks for both the electrical and data networking engineers who must work together to build them. In this book, two Cisco engineers who are pioneering optical IP networking review the field from each key perspective: today's emerging standards, the state of the technology, and new enterprise and service provider applications. The authors show how Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) will enable powerful traffic engineering on optical IP networks. In particular, Next Generation Optical Networking presents an in-depth examination of the emerging Multiprotocol Lambda Switching Model (MPLms): its architecture, elements, and its role in real-time lightpath provisioning. The book also includes several detailed application case studies. For data networking engineers who understand IP and need to learn optical networking; and for electrical engineers who need to learn how to build IP intelligence into fiber optic more

TomorrowOs networks will integrate optical transmission and IP to deliver unprecedented performance and manageability. "Next Generation Optical Networks" gives both electrical and data networking engineers essential information for building these networks. It reviews emerging standards such as MPLS and MPLmS, key optical technologies, and critical applications for enterprise, ISP, and carrier environments. "show more

About Peter Tomsu

PETER TOMSU, Ph.D., Senior Consulting Engineer at Cisco Systems, has worked with Cisco since 1996. He is involved in numerous network designs for service provider backbones to large enterprise backbones, and is significantly driving new technologies during their definition, development, introduction, and final deployment phases. For many years, Tomsu has been a requested speaker at international conferences in the United States and worldwide. He received his Ph.D. from the Technical University of Vienna. CHRISTIAN SCHMUTZER, M.S., Systems Engineer at Cisco Systems, has been with the company since 1998. He works primarily on the design and deployment of large service provider backbones and concentrates on optical networking as well as routing technologies. As a speaker for technical tutorials throughout Europe, he frequently shares his practical experience. He received his Masters from the Fachhochschule Technikum-Wien, more
