From the Back Cover:

power to evaluate technologies, companies, equipment, trends

Bursting with promise as a potential solution to skyrocketing Internet traffic, optical networking is the buzz of Silicon Valley and Wall Street. But if you need to penetrate deeper than excitement and speculation--if you want to put insight, experience, and an insider's grasp behind your business and personal investment decisions--you've come to the right place. Steve Shepard's lucid, probing, and well-conceived Optical Networking Demystified is the Rosetta Stone that decodes the mysteries. It shows you what's what, who's who, and how it all works together in the speed-of-light world of optical networking, from technologies and equipment to companies and competitors.
