Review:

The first edition of Optical Networks: A Practical Perspective accumulated lots of happy readers, largely because the authors took care to explain the physical phenomena that allow light to carry information as well as the design principles that characterise good optical networks, particularly wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). Very little was assumed, and even the most complicated formulas appeared alongside annotations that shed light on the behaviour being described. The latest edition of the book has everything that made the first edition great--the physics haven't changed much, after all--as well as up-to-date information about networking equipment and techniques. The second edition is a first-class revision; you'll want it even if you already own the old version.

Half of this book has more to do with network engineering than with theoretical matters. The authors take care to discuss all aspects of optical data communications with efficiency (in terms of capacity utilisation, management effort and monetary cost) in mind. There's not a lot of discussion of vendors' specific products, so you'll have to look elsewhere for configuration instructions. But for getting your network designed and understanding how its components communicate data and provide redundancy--as well as for providing reference to other authoritative works--this book is tops. --David Wall

Topics covered: Tools and technologies for communicating data (including digitised voice signals) over fibre optic cables. SONET gets a lot of attention, as does wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) as a technique for increasing capacity. Network design--with an eye toward efficiency and survivability--is dealt with in authoritative detail.

Review:

"The authors’ grasp of what is truly workable and worthwhile in optical networks is fundamental, and they have effectively packaged this knowledge in an easy-to-comprehend text that will be valued to both veterans and those new to optical networking." --Scott Grout, President and CEO, Chorum Technologies
