When it comes to home decorating, wallpaper is making a comeback. The trend for plain, white walls is giving way to a new style of decorating, which allows you to transform your walls with the most amazing colours and patterns.
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.</p> <p> Key features:</p> <ul> <li>Considers WDM from ULH backbone (big picture view) down to PON access (micro view). </li> <li>Includes all major telecom and datacom applications. </li> <li>Provides the relevant background for state-of-the-art and next-gen systems. </li> <li>Offers practical guidelines for system / link engineering. </li> </ul>
