Experts in the field present the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for understanding and designing fiber optic communica-tion systems. This book bridges the gap between classical commu-nication practice and the new techniques required to design fiber optic communication systems. Engineering rules for designing systems are also given and supported by theoretical treatments.
