This book is an authoritative review of current and future trends in the field of telecommunications. Written by industry experts who are developing leading-edge data communication networks, "Fiber Optic Data Communication" provides professionals and students alike with a look at emerging technologies and their applications. Four of the chapters have been revised from DeCusatis' best-selling book, "Handbook of Fiber Optic Data Communications"; the remaining eight chapters are all new. Seven helpful appendices, a glossary, and a list of technical acronyms are included. This book can stand alone or as a companion volume to "DeCusatis: Handbook of Fiber Optic Data Communication, Second Edition" (February 2002, ISBN: 0-12-207891-8). It includes emerging technologies such as Infiniband, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and MPLS Optical Switching. It describes leading edge commercial products, including LEAF and MetroCore fibers, dense wavelength multiplexing, and Small Form Factor transceiver packages. It covers all major industry standards, often written by the same people who designed the standards themselves.
It includes an expanded listing of references on the World Wide Web, plus hard-to-find references for international, homologation, and type approval requirements. It contains convenient tables of key optical datacom parameters and glossary with hundreds of definitions and acronyms. There are industry buzzwords that are explained, including SAN, NAS, and MAN networking. It also includes Datacom market analysis and future projections from industry's leading forecasters.
