0 Reseñas
The complete, example-based guide to advanced WDM networks.WDM technologyWDM network architecture, protocols, and routingWDM network design, provisioning, and survivabilityNext-generation IP-over-WDM optical InternetsWavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and wavelength routing are rapidly becoming the technologies of choice in network infrastructure that must accommodate unprecedented, accelerating demand for bandwidth. "WDM Optical Networks: Concepts, Design, and Algorithms" provides practicing engineers, students, and researchers with a systematic, up-to-date introduction to the fundamental concepts, challenges, and state-of-the-art developments in WDM optical networks. The authors rely extensively on real-world examples and draw on the latest research to cover optical network design and provisioning in far greater depth than any other book. Coverage includes: WDM advantages: increased usable bandwidth, reduced processing cost, protocol transparency, and efficient failure handlingArchitecture and routing in wavelength-convertible networksIn-depth coverage of wavelength routing and rerouting algorithmsVirtual topology design and reconfigurationEnsuring network survivability: practical design and provisioning techniquesOptical multicast routing: node architecture, tree generation, and virtual source-based treesPreviewing and planning for next-generation IP-over-WDM optical Internets Includes extensive directory of Web resource linksFocusing primarily on WDM technology, WDM Optical Networks will be invaluable to every network engineer, technical manager, researcher, and student involved with the design or implementation of advanced WDM networks.
