A comprehensive, analytical approach to bit error rate estimation of transmitted signals

Few subjects are more crucial to the quality of service of DWDM optical communications systems and networks than bit error rate (BER) estimation. One of the world’s leading authorities on DWDM, Stamatios Kartalopoulos, offers this comprehensive treatment of an easy-to-follow approach to BER estimation.

Optical Bit Error Rate is an authoritative guide that describes the sources effecting the quality of optical signals. It lays the theoretical foundation on which signal quality and optical channel performance are estimated, monitored, and detected, and presents a cost-effective method for the automatic estimation of BER, Q-factor, and SNR, using integrated circuitry at the receiver. Among the key issues covered in this informative and thought-provoking reference are:

  • Noise sources in the optical transmission medium
  • Optical transmitter and receiver noise
  • The eye diagram
  • Errored bits and the bit error rate
  • Error detection and correction methodology
  • BER statistical measurements

Complete with a companion CD-ROM, prepared by RSoft, using their latest simulation software OptSim™, and containing ten real-life exercises that cover a wide spectrum of link-layer problems including optical amplifiers, Optical Bit Error Rate is the definitive guide for communications engineers looking for detailed information on this critically important topic.
