More About This Title Nonlinear Optical Communication Networks


What telecommunications professionals need to know about nonlinearoptical communication systems

This book responds to the need for a coherent approach to nonlinearoptical communication systems. It gives telecommunicationsresearchers and engineers a handle on the unique problems presentedby the proliferation of optical technologies in telecommunicationsin recent years and provides problem-solving strategies for variousnetwork functions and operations.

The product of a collaborative effort by four well-knownresearchers in telecommunications transmission systems, this volumecovers design basics, network performance, and state-of-the-artsystem analysis tools and is supplemented with hundreds ofillustrations as well as appendices containing the necessarymathematical derivations. It details:
* Design principles of the network transmission layer with opticaltechnologies and fiber nonlinearities in place.
* Performance evaluation for a variety of optical transmissionsystems operating under nonlinear propagation regimes.
* Local area networks, regional networks, and geographicalnetworks--their potential transmission capacity and possibleproblems.
* Examples of effective design from the most promising nonlinearoptical transmission systems.
* The methodology for design and analysis of a generic system
