About this book


Optical Transmission collect several key topics related to transmission in optical systems. It stems from a set of clusters of partner institutions inside BONE- Building the Future Optical Network in Europe, therefore giving a very wide view on issues related to the topic of optical networking. Optical Transmission focuses on optical transmission systems, subsystems, components, methodologies and economics around the subject. It examines the status of actual transmission systems in a very compact and direct way. From there, the path to next generation networks is drawn by defining subsystems and components which will probably enable them. The dynamics of these systems are analysed by description of the management and monitoring of these networks and how they interplay. Then, to complement the presentation in the remaining chapters, simulation issues are covered. Utlimately, a set of economic drivers will define the lines for the next steps.
