Intended as a graduate/post graduate level textbook for courses on high speed optical networks as well as computer networks. The ten chapters cover basic principles of the technology as well as latest developments, and further discusses network security, survivability and reliability of optical networks and priority schemes used in wavelength routing. The book also goes on to examine FTTH standards, deployments and research issues and includes examples throughout all the chapters aid understanding of problems and solutions.
