This in-depth, detailed reference presents for the first time a comprehensive treatment of the recent advances in optical performance monitoring (OPM). Written by leading experts in the field, the book provides an overview of recent developments in the area and the role of OPM in future optical systems and networks, followed by a comparison of the current commercially available optical channel and performance monitors. The principles and applications of advanced OPM techniques are analysed, accompanied by a comparative evaluation of their effectiveness in monitoring individual parameters such as optical signal-to-noise ratio, chromatic dispersion and BER. Each chapter gives a thorough overview as well as a comparative analysis of the various monitoring techniques. Finally, the book examines the needs and applications of OPM in optical networks, including fault management, lightpath tracing and supervision for connectivity management, and discusses the current approaches of OPM in the global standard SDH/SONET. This book will be an ideal one-stop reference for technical professionals and researchers who need to understand and evaluate advanced techniques in OPM, and their impact upon the practical design of next generation optical systems and networks.
