Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


DWDM (dense-wavelength division multiplexing) is a method of providing increased broadband information delivery through existing fiber-optic systems. DWDM and optical networks will form the future backbone of worldwide communications as they allow data transmission at terabits per second, a speed that until recently was hardly conceivable. The book gives individuals a clear and comprehensible introduction to DWDM and its use in the coming generation of optical networks.
