Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Companies and research labs worldwide are racing to develop Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, a far-reaching advancement in the fiber optical communications field. To help you keep pace with these latest developments, this all-in-one resource brings you a clear, concise overview of the technology that is transporting and processing vast amounts of information at the speed of light. Until now, no book offered a practical introduction to DWDM advances.

INTRODUCTION TO DWDM TECHNOLOGY will help you learn all the essentials for this emerging field:

* Principles of physics underlying optical devices

* Optical components needed to design optical and DWDM systems

* Coding and decoding techniques used in optical communications

* Overview of DWDM systems

* State-of-the-art research trends

Complete with four-color illustrations to show how devices work, this comprehensive book provides an invaluable discussion of DWDM basics necessary for practicing electrical engineers, optical systems designers, technical managers, and undergraduate students in optical communications.

About the Author

Stamatios V. Kartalopoulos is currently on the staff of the Optical Networks Group of Lucent Technologies, Bell Labs Innovations, formerly known as AT&T. His research interests include ATM and SONET/SDH systems, ultrafast pattern recognition, IP and DWDM, access enterprise systems, local area networks, fiber networks, satellite systems, intelligent signal processing, neural networks, and fuzzy logic. He holds several patents of which six patents (and six pending) are in communications and optical communications systems."

Book News Annotation:

Kartalopoulas (Advanced Optical Networking Center of Lucent Technologies) actually only devotes the last quarter of this work specifically to dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM—an optical communications technology). The first sections of the book attempt to explain the properties of light; its interaction with matter; and how it is used to develop optical components such as filters, multiplexers, and other optical communication devices. The sections devoted exclusively to DWDM discuss system design issues, network topologies, fault avoidance, and issues of current research.
