The third edition of Optical Networks will continue be the market leader with its enormous depth and breath of coverage. Architecture, design, and management are completely covered at both the transmission and component levels. Essential revisions throughout the book will include discussions of aggregation and transport of broadband traffic, especially IPTV (TV over the Internet), and new design examples for metro and long haul traffic. New technologies will be completely covered with sections on pluggable optical transceivers, ROADM (reconfigurable optical add/drop muliplexer), and electronic dispersion compensation. Current standards updates such as G.709 OTN, as well as, those for GPON,…
