Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) has emerged as an efficient technology for exploiting the huge bandwidth capacity inherent in optical fibers. Optical WDM Networks introduces fundamental WDM concepts and design principles in an easy-to-understand manner while including state-of the-art technologies that have been recently proposed to address the design issues. It is organized into eight chapters, covering the most important networking aspects of WDM networks, including network architectures, routing and wavelength assignment, virtual topology configuraton and reconfiguration, distributed lightpath control, optical-layer protection and restoration, and next generation optical Internet.
