SONET/SDH Demystified

SONET/SDH Demystified

378 pages, parution le 01/09/2001


  • Clear explanations of SONET (Synchronous Optical Network), the industry standard for high speed transmission over optical fiber, for the non-engineer
  • Provides detailed SONET case studies and business models
  • Includes coverage of DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) and WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing)
THE HOW'S AND WHY'S 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.


  • Your're at the point where technology turns to business and shoot-or-pass decisions get made
  • Staying on top of what's hot in communications is your job
  • You need to understand the growth and workings of SONET/SDH, but don't have time for MIT
  • You want to compare cots, potentials, and performance of SONET/SDH with other technologies
  • You'd 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
  • You're a curious technophile who can't get enough insider details on new communications strategies, methods, and trends
  • You see that there's more sun in the winner's 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.
