Summary Annotation <p align="left">Plan and implement fiber optic networks <p align="left">Effectively design and deploy bandwidth-rich networks for major types of data traffic. Covering both short-reach and long-haul networks, Planning Fiber Optic Networks provides full details on all major fiber optic parameters and includes appropriate background theory and design calculations. You will find guidelines for optimizing SONET/SDH and Ethernet networks, setting up network topologies, minimizing signal loss and impairments, and using dark fiber. Real-world examples are included throughout this practical guide. <ul><li> Understand signal propagation in a single-mode fiber </li><li> Plan an optical loss budget </li><li> Maintain an acceptable optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) </li><li> Learn about the effects of chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) </li><li> Expand fiber capacity using wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) </li><li> Reduce fiber nonlinear impairments </li><li> Perform fiber characterization to ensure optimal quality and performance </li><li> Test Ethernet and SONET/SDH networks </li><li> Plan point-to-point and ring fiber topologies </li><li> Lease or purchase dark fiber </li></ul>
