Written from the computer networking perspective, this book's foundation is laid upon a comparison of the roles of optical networks in telecommunications to other types of networks, theory behind light propagation, and processes of modulation and demodulation of digital signals. First- and second-generation optical networks, including SONET, WDM, OTDM, and CDMA networks, are described with routing techniques and troubleshooting solutions, as are more recent developments such as multiplexing, cross connects, and core optical switching. Also, a full chapter devoted to managing optical networks covers performance, fault, safety, deploying, and troubleshooting for the enterprise manager.
