SONET or Ethernet?

How to extend broadband through Metro Area Networks--that's the question carriers are asking. Many are answering "SONET" - but that's just the beginning of the questions. This expert guide offers serious help with the challenges of implementing enhanced SONET for converged services.

SONET Solutions for MANs

The perfect resource for evaluating and deploying SONET as a MAN solution, "SONET-Based Metro Area Networks can help you sort out your options and put your choices into action. Detailed coverage prepares you to build business models, review protocols, contrast costs and features, and design and deploy next-generation platforms.

Eight insight-packed chapters help you:
* Review all emerging metro protocols and their interactions
* Decide with confidence on a cell or packet-switched network
* Choose ATM or point-to-point
* Achieve new features with enhanced SONET and multi-lambda rings
* Understand and apply GMPLS (Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching)
* Contend with municipal-owned infrastructures
* Discover workable design approaches for real-world deployments.

Don't jump into your next-generation architecture without a parachute. This book is a survival tool for those planning, designing, and building Metropolitan Area Networks.
