Planning Fiber Optics Networks

by: Bob Chomycz


Abstract: Today’s best sourcebook for making optimal use of fiber optic networks for every major type of data traffic. The huge volume of video and other bandwidth-heavy content is forcing IT and telecom companies to rethink their network pipelines, in order to insure access to customers. This book shows you how to effectively design and deploy bandwidth-rich networks for all major types of data traffic. Planning Fiber Optic Networks describes available technologies used to transport traffic over fiber - such as LAN, IP, and voice traffic - and shows how to plan and develop each of these technologies. Throughout the volume, renowned fiber optic expert Bob Chomycz focuses on the relative cost-effectiveness of competing fiber technologies, highlighting methods for optimizing fiber bandwidth potential. You will find timely information on SONET, WDM, Metropolitan, and Long-Haul networks, plus full coverage of dark fiber.
