"Sonet" is the flexible, highly interoperable transport technology at the heart of today's high-speed optical networks. Now, communications engineers have a comprehensive, up-to-the-minute introduction to "Sonet" technology. "Sonet": Architecture for Digital Transport Networks, Second Edition covers every facet of "Sonet" and SDH technology, including the new IP-over-Sonet "optical Internet, " as well as "Sonet"'s relationship to WDM and other key innovations. The authors begin with an overview of "Sonet's" goals and architecture; then present the most detailed coverage of "Sonet" operations, administration, and management available in any book. They reflect important changes to "Sonet" technology and standards, including changes to network management, as well as new applications. This edition shows "Sonet" at work in both metropolitan area networks and long-haul networks, and includes a new chapter on SDH, the European "Sonet" standard, and interworking between "Sonet" and SDH networks. The authors preview IP-over-"Sonet" and tomorrow's optical Internet, and also offer insight into "Sonet"'s relationship with WDM, the advanced technology that is allowing network owners to drive far more traffic over their existing fiber plants.

SONET and T1: Architectures for Digital Transport Networks gives you the big picture on SONET, the second-generation digital carrier system, placing it in the context of the widely used first-generation system, T1. This rich resource offers detailed information on the how's and why's of managing a SONET system. SONET and T1: Architectures for Digital Transport Networks explains how to structure and maintain a high-performance network, using real-life examples of systems currently in use in a variety of business, industrial, and institutional settings. In addition, this book shows how to use SONET to interface with a variety of local and international networks, and to minimize data loss when communicating with older systems.Key chapters explore: \*The basics of digital carrier systems \*Timing and synchronization in digital networks \*Payload mapping and management \*Topologies and configurations, including add-drop and cross-connect \*Operations, administration, and maintenance of digital networks \*Case studies of existing SONET systems Appendices provide valuable background material on the structure, function, and performance of fiber optics, and a review of ATM technology. Filled with practical and specific information, SONET and T1: Architectures for Digital Transport Networks provides a thorough introduction to the latest in digital network technology. 384 pp. Englisch.
