Wavelength division multiplexing: a practical engineering guide

Wavelenght division multiplexing

Title: Wavelength Division Multiplexing: A Practical Engineering Guide
Author: Klaus Grobe, Michael Eiselt
Year: 2013
Publisher: Wiley
ISBN: 9780470623023

Available for loan at:  621.375.9 GRO

In this book, Optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) is approached from a strictly practical and application-oriented point of view. Based on the characteristics and constraints of modern fiber-optic components, transport systems and fibers, the text provides relevant rules of thumb and practical hints for technology selection, WDM system and link dimensioning, and also for network-related aspects such as wavelength assignment and resilience mechanisms. Actual 10/40 Gb/s WDM systems are considered, and a preview of the upcoming 100 Gb/s systems and technologies for even higher bit rates is given as well.
