*****Excellent Resource!

Very well written and thorough...goes through the end users perspective, the IS/IT staffs perspective, and the typical decision process to make sure the design is appropriate....excellent description of each technology...helps in sounding more intelligent in front of my customers. - Online customer review of the authors Broadband Telecommunications Handbook


With patentable clarity, thoroughness, and foresight, expert Regis J. Bud Bates - whose earlier books are telecom classics - answers the essential questions about optical switching and networking -

1)What is it?

2)What do I need to know about it?

3)Whats it going to do for me?

4)How much is it going to cost?


Get the answers to help you make all needed decisions: financial, management, marketing, equipment, applications, and protocols

This one-of-a-kind volume gives you a practical approach to optical technologies and their applications. Heavily illustrated, and featuring a basics-up organization, the Handbook gives you a succinct analysis of systems and options without burying you in technical details.


You get straightforward, jargon-free translations of techspeak into clear-eyed, business-based descriptions of products, applications, and standards - with emphasis on key comparisons and factors needed for decision-making. No matter where you work in telecom or convergence, this guide provides facts and insights you need on everything from basic to advanced issues. Look inside to learn whats new in:

*The optical networks that are reshaping the telecom/computing worlds

*SONET and SDH - dead or just getting started?

*DWDM - all the bandwidth in the world

*Copper vs. fiber (legacy vs. speed) - in-depth comparisons

*Cost and performance - optical vs. fixed-point wireless and other competitors

Theres no other guide that tackles new and in-development fiberoptic protocols, products, and technologies like this one. For an unequaled overview of this rapidly advancing field - one that can help you make the most profitable business, technical, and career decisions - no guide but Optical Switching and Networking Handbook will do.
