Handbook of Fiber Optic Data Communication: A Practical Guide to Optical Networking


The 4th variation of this well known instruction manual maintains to supply an easy-to-use advisor to the various intriguing new advancements within the box of optical fiber info communications. With ninety% new content material, this version includes all new fabric describing the transformation of the trendy info communications community, either in the information heart and over prolonged distances among facts facilities, besides most sensible practices for the layout of hugely virtualized, converged, strength effective, safe, and flattened community infrastructures.

Key issues comprise networks for cloud computing, software program outlined networking, built-in and embedded networking home equipment, and occasional latency networks for monetary buying and selling or different time-sensitive functions. community architectures from the major owners are defined (including clever Analytic recommendations, Qfabric, FabricPath, and Exadata) in addition to the most recent revisions to criteria for interoperable networks, together with lossless Ethernet, 16G Fiber Channel, RoCE, FCoE, TRILL, IEEE 802.1Qbg, and extra.

  • Written via specialists from IBM, HP, Dell, Cisco, Ciena, and sunlight/ Oracle
  • Case experiences and ‘How to...’ demonstrations on a variety of subject matters, together with Optical Ethernet, subsequent iteration net, RDMA and Fiber Channel over Ethernet
  • Quick reference tables of the entire key optical community parameters for protocols like ESCON, FICON, and SONET/ATM and a thesaurus of technical phrases and acronyms
