About these proceedings


This book is of interest to both academic and professional researchers working in the field of optical fiber communication. The focus is on engineering networks exploiting advanced optical technologies. Originally presented at OpNeTec 2004, the chapters cover optical network systems, transmission, and amplification; theoretical aspects; system implementation; and experimental test-beds.
