Electrical Engineering Photonic Switching Technology Systems and Networks Find out how today’s photonic switching technologies can provide a functional advantage in handling the ever-increasing data rates and bandwidth requirements placed on telecommunication components, systems, and networks with this self-contained, tutorial guide. Based on systems currently in use, Photonic Switching Technology: Systems and Networks will equip practitioners and researchers with a comprehensive understanding of the functionality and versatility provided by photonics technologies used in all-optical networks weighed against their costs and limitations. The authors feature special coverage of state-of-the-art pilot systems that use photonic switching and multiwavelength techniques, such as Monet, Lambdanet, Cobra, and Starnet. These systems not only demonstrate the feasibility of optical systems, but also the implications of system integration, supporting technologies, and system economics. Photonic Switching Technology brings you a wealth of information on

  • Photonic switches based on the electro-optic effect, switches based on semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA), and optical memory switches
  • Free space optical switching
  • Wavelength division switching, including wavelength routing, wavelength conversion, and WDM packet switching
  • Optical crossconnects
