Updated and expanded, this second edition of the acclaimed Multiwavelength Optical Networks provides a detailed description of the structure and operation of modern optical networks. It also sets out the analytical tools for network performance evaluation and optimization for current and next generation networks, as well as the latest advances in enabling technologies. Backbone optical networks are evolving to mesh topologies using intelligent network elements; a new optical control plane is taking shape based on GMPLS; and significant advances have occurred in Fiber to the Home/Premises (the ‘last mile’), metropolitan area networks, protection and restoration, and IP over WDM. New research on all-optical packet switched networks is also covered in depth. Also included are current trends and new applications on the commercial scene. This book is an invaluable resource for graduate and senior undergraduate students in electrical engineering, computer science, and applied physics, and for practitioners in the telecommunications industry. Contents 1. The big picture 2. The layered architecture and its resources 3. Network connections 4. Enabling technology 5. Static multipoint networks 6. Wavelength/waveband routed networks 7. Logically routed networks 8. Survivability: protection and restoration 9. Optical control plane 10. Optical packet switched networks 11. Current trends in multiwavelength optical networking Appendices: A. Graph theory B. Fixed scheduling algorithm C. Markov chains and queues D. A limiting-cut heuristic E. An algorithm for minimum-interference routing in linear lightwave networks F. Synopsis of the SONET standard G. A looping algorithm. Printed Pages: 1004.
