Cross-Layer Design in Optical Networks
This work addresses the topic of optical networks cross-layer design with a focus on physical-layer-impairment-aware design. Contributors captures both the physical-layer-aware network design as well as the latest advances in service-layer-aware network design. Treatment of topics such as, optical transmissions which are prone to signal impairments, dense packing of wavelengths, dispersion, crosstalk, etc., as well as how to design the network to mitigate such impairments, are all covered.
Description of various network areas of research by leading researchers active in those areasChapters start at an introductory level and builds to the advance level, being appropriate for both practitioners and researchersExplanations of network designs and network standards at the network operator and vendor level, making the material accessible as an industry reference
