by

Next Generation Optical Networks: The Convergence of IP Intelligence and Optical Technologies (Prentice Hall Series in Computer Networking and Distributed) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TomorrowÕs networks will integrate optical transmission and IP to deliver unprecedented performance and manageability. Next Generation Optical Networks gives both electrical and data networking engineers essential information for building these networks. It reviews emerging standards such as MPLS and MPLmS, key optical technologies, and critical applications for enterprise, ISP, and carrier environments.

Book News Annotation:

Outlines the major technologies of optical transmission space and IP networking, and explores how to deliver IP services over an optical network infrastructure. The authors, who are engineers at Cisco, overview existing and possible future carrier network architectures, and review current standardization activities in optical networking. They also explain packet over SONET/SDH, dynamic packet transport, MPLS traffic engineering, and the evolution of the integrated IP optical peer control plane.
