Powered by. Optical networking has advanced considerably since A host of new technologies and applications has brought a significant change in optical networks, migrating it towards an all-optical network. This book places great emphasis on the network concepts, technology, and methodologies that will stand the test of time and also help in understanding and developing advanced optical network systems.
The first part of Optical WDM Networks: From Static to Elastic Networks provides a qualitative foundation for what follows-presenting an overview of optical networking, the different network architectures, basic concepts, and a high-level view of the different network structures considered in subsequent chapters.

- Realizing the optical transport networking vision in the 100 Gb/s era!
- Mastering Technical Mathematics, Third Edition!
- The Dutch Trading Companies as Knowledge Networks?
It offers a survey of enabling technologies and the hardware devices in the physical layer, followed by a more detailed picture of the network in the remaining chapters. It discusses the networking picture; network control and management, impairment management and survivability.
The last section of the book covers the upcoming technologies of flex-grid and software defined optical networking.
