A Bright Optical Future
Convergence and unification of protocols for optical networks is a must to bring next generation high-speed applications with low-costs to any individual customer.
This book prepares the practitioning network-engineer and -designer optimally for this task: SDH/SONET vs. ATM vs. MPLS is today's struggle for unified protocols in future fiber optic networks providing the delivery of any IP-service to the customer at low-cost and high quality of service.
The book is strictly future oriented, well written and covers all relevant topics with sufficient depths, but is not overloaded with details. For those readers interested in more specific aspects, it provides a lot of "further readings" and references.
I have enjoyed reading "Next Generation Optical Networks" very much and it is always at hand at the pile top of my book shelf.
