This guide offers a balance between technical and practical details for SONET deployment. Worked-out examples and real-world applications from companies such as Bell South and Boeing are used to clarify SONET's relationship with the full range of fibre optic transmissions. Walter Goralski is the author of "Introduction to ATM" and "APPN/HPR: The Future of SNA".

A unique and practical master guide that will help you achieve greater bandwidth. Speed, increased bandwidth, flexibility, and cost-efficiency: These are just some of the advantages that are making the Synchronous Optical Network or SONET--the international standard for high-speed data transmission via fiber optic cable--a technology in high demand. In a growing family of industries and in a wide variety of uses--from new aircraft to sports stadiums to telephone and cable--SONET is rapidly becoming a technology-of-choice. This is the first truly comprehensive guide to SONET--and the first guide to treat the system as an independent service and technology. Going beyond more byte-level technical details, SONET: A Guide to Synchronous Optical Networks shows you how to work with SONET. You'll find practical, real-world applications, including techniques for achieving greater bandwidth. Other features include: turotials (a``survivors' guide'') containing information on basic fiber optic transmission technology and concepts; explanation of the global digital hierarchly, with SONET applications; discussions of SONET protocol architecture and operation; illustration of the SONET/ATM link, and how the two technologies work together, plus key concepts behind B-ISDN; international applications: a comparison between SONET and SDH, Europe's Synchronous Digital Hierarchy system (the European standard); a comprehensive listing of currently available SONET equipment, plus vendors which build and supply SONET components. Thoroughly covering every aspect of SONET--including other, complementary technologies necessary to maximize SONET use--this is an indispensable text for network administrators, engineers, and carrier personnel working with end users.About the Author:
