Description

A comprehensive guide to SDH, SONET, and OTN

The ComSoc Guide to Next Generation Optical Transport provides a unique overview of SDH and OTN for engineers who are new to the field, as well as manufacturers, network operators, and graduate students who need a basic understanding of the topics. Fully up-to-date with the latest research and written by one of the foremost experts in the field, it covers:

  • Network architectures

  • Frames and structures

  • Network modeling

  • Packet transport network modeling

  • Frequency justification

  • Protection mechanisms

  • Mapping methodologies

  • Concatenation

  • SDH and SONET overhead processing

The book is complemented with 200 illustrations that explain key concepts in an easy-to-understand format, while references point readers to the appropriate standards documents for further reading. Whether you're new to the field or just need a basic understanding of SDH, this is a must-have guide.
