Optical Fiber Communications
The third edition of this popular text and reference book presents the fundamental principles for understanding and applying optical fiber technology to sophisticated modern telecommunication systems.
Optical-fiber-based telecommunication networks have become a major information-transmission-system, with high capacity links encircling the globe in both terrestrial and undersea installations. Numerous passive and active optical devices within these links perform complex transmission and networking functions in the optical domain, such as signal amplification, restoration, routing, and switching. Along with the need to understand the functions of these devices comes the necessity to measure both component and network performance, and to model and stimulate the complex behavior of reliable high-capacity networks.

... and Lefr is the effective length , which takes into account power absorption
along the length of the fiber . Example 12-6 . The limits indicated by Eqs . ( 12-31
) are illustrated in Fig . 12-28 for systems with four and eight wavelength
n2 = 2.6 x 10-16 cm / W . What are the dispersion length and the soliton period ?
What is the required peak power for 30 - ps pulses ? 12-21 . A
telecommunications service provider wants a single - wavelength soliton
transmission system that ...
The fiber length L ( and , hence , the position of the break or fault ) can be
calculated from the time difference between the pulses reflected from the front
and far ends of the fiber . If this time difference is t , then the length L is given by ct
