THE HOW'S AND WHY'S AND APPLICATIONS ON SONET/SDH--MINUS THE JARGON Intended for use in broadband ISDN and ATM networks, SONET (Synchronous Optical Network) and SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) have taken on a life of their own. As fiber optic cable becomes the standard for data transmission, telcos and other carriers are deploying more high-speed SONET/SDH technologies to support leased-line services such as DS-1 and DS-3. In search of ever-faster data speeds, leading corporations such as Boeing, AT&T, and Disney are moving their private global networks to a SONET/SDH infrastructure. THIS BOOK IS A MUST-READ IF-- Your're at the point where technology turns to business and shoot-or-pass decisions get made Staying on top of what's hot in communications is your job You need to understand the growth and workings of SONET/SDH, but don't have time for MIT You want to compare cots, potentials, and performance of SONET/SDH with other technologies You'd like business-model case studies of DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) and WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) that make sense You sell, market, or manage for a firm that develops SONET/SDH systems You make career choices in telecom, Internet service, networking, or the upper echelons of any large business You invest in communications equipment makers, service providers, or applications creators You're a curious technophile who can't get enough insider details on new communications strategies, methods, and trends You see that there's more sun in the winner's circle than in the also-ran column The easiest way to size up SONET/SDH for your network--or simply to better understand these rapidly expanding technologies--SONET/SDH DEMYSTIFIED is the ideal shortcut to the front edge of high-speed networking.
