THE HOWS AND WHYS AND APPLICATIONS ON SONET/SDH--MINUS THE JARGON


Intended for use in broadband ISDN and ATM networks, SONET (Synchronous Optical Network) and SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) have taken on a life of their own. As fiber optic cable becomes the standard for data transmission, telcos and other carriers are deploying more high-speed SONET/SDH technologies to support leased-line services such as DS-1 and DS-3. In search of ever-faster data speeds, leading corporations such as Boeing, AT&T, and Disney are moving their private global networks to a SONET/SDH infrastructure.


THIS BOOK IS A MUST-READ IF--



* Yourre at the point where technology turns to business and shoot-or-pass decisions get made

* Staying on top of whats hot in communications is your job

* You need to understand the growth and workings of SONET/SDH, but dont have time for MIT

* You want to compare cots, potentials, and performance of SONET/SDH with other technologies

* Youd like business-model case studies of DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) and WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) that make sense

* You sell, market, or manage for a firm that develops SONET/SDH systems

* You make career choices in telecom, Internet service, networking, or the upper echelons of any large business

* You invest in communications equipment makers, service providers, or applications creators

* Youre a curious technophile who cant get enough insider details on new communications strategies, methods, and trends

* You see that theres more sun in the winners circle than in the also-ran column


The easiest way to size up SONET/SDH for your network--or simply to better understand these rapidly expanding technologies--SONET/SDH DEMYSTIFIED is the ideal shortcut to the front edge of high-speed networking.
