Plan and implement fiber optic networks

Effectively design and deploy bandwidth-rich networks for major types of data traffic. Covering both short-reach and long-haul networks, Planning Fiber Optic Networks provides full details on all major fiber optic parameters and includes appropriate background theory and design calculations. You will find guidelines for optimizing SONET/SDH and Ethernet networks, setting up network topologies, minimizing signal loss and impairments, and using dark fiber. Real-world examples are included throughout this practical guide.

  • Understand signal propagation in a single-mode fiber
  • Plan an optical loss budget
  • Maintain an acceptable optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR)
  • Learn about the effects of chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD)
  • Expand fiber capacity using wavelength division multiplexing (WDM)
  • Reduce fiber nonlinear impairments
  • Perform fiber characterization to ensure optimal quality and performance
  • Test Ethernet and SONET/SDH networks
  • Plan point-to-point and ring fiber topologies
  • Lease or purchase dark fiber
