Optical Transmission Systems Engineering

Front Cover
Artech House, 2004 - Science - 288 pages
This practitioner's look at optical transmission gives you essential, hands-on guidance to engineering for optimal network performance. Real-world applications illustrate in detail the principles of transmission systems engineering. Complete with tables containing optical signal, noise and impairment parameters, this book is a useful tool for calculating and modelling network transmission capabilities, evaluating tradeoffs among systems parameters and transmission optimization, and assessing optical transport limits and penalties. network transmission under worst case conditions, establish benchmarks for innovating high-performance, high-reliability optical transmission equipment, and achieve other network performance goals. An overview of systems engineering and optical networking fundamentals quickly brings students and novices up to speed on a wide range of critical topics all practitioners need to understand.
