[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]



This book presents a high level technical overview of the emerging technologies of fibre optical communications and optical networking. Written at the “technical conceptual” level it is intended as an introduction to the field for computer and data communication professionals. Discussion is descriptive and an effort has been made to keep the use of mathematics to a minimum. Although it is intended for professionals who already have some technical background, it is nevertheless relevant to anyone wishing to understand optical communication.
