About this book
Optical Networks - Architecture and Survivability, is a state-of-the-art work on survivable and cost-effective design of control and management for networks with IP directly over Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology (or called Optical Internet). The authors address issues of signaling mechanisms, resource reservation, and survivable routing and wavelength assignment. Special emphasis has been given to the design of meshed, middle-sized, and wavelength-routed networks with dynamic traffic in the optical domain, such as the next-generation Metropolitan Area Network.
Research and development engineers, graduate students studying wavelength-routed WDM networks, and senior undergraduate students with a background in algorithms and networking will find this book interesting and useful. This work may also be used as supplemental readings for graduate courses on internetworking, routing, survivability, and network planning algorithms.
