Description

This book is the perfect solution for those involved or interested in the operation of optical devices, networks or service providers. This reference book explains the latest technologies and applications used in the optical communication industry, assists with the explanation of technologies by using many diagrams and pictures. It is a great reference tool that allows people to effectively communicate with other people involved in the optical communication industry.

The convergence of technologies and systems in the optical industry means more competitors and new industry terms. As a result, communicating with others has become more....

Sample Diagrams

Optical Spectrum

This diagram shows the different portions of the optical spectrum and their primary characteristics.



Wave Division Multiplexing

This diagram shows how a wave division multiplexing over fiber operates. This diagram shows that there are several lasers operating at different optical wavelengths (different colors/frequencies). Each laser converts an electrical signal into a pulsed light signal. These optical signals (optical carriers) are combined by an optical multiplexer (lens) for transmission through the optical fiber. At the receiving end, the different optical carriers are separated by an optical demultiplexer (lens) and each optical carrier is sent to a photo-detector. The photo-detector converts the optical signal back into its original electrical form.



Optical Free Space Transmission

This figure shows free space optical transmission. This diagram shows that free space optical transmission systems loose some of their energy from signal scattering, absorption and scintillation. Optical signal scattering occurs when light signals are redirected as they pass through water particles. Optical signal absorption occurs as some optical energy is converted to heat as it strikes particles (such as smog). Scintillation occurs when heated (such as from smokestacks) air cause a bending of the optical beam. This example shows that it is possible to transmit multiple lightwave signals on different wavelengths (WDM) to increase the overall data transmission rate.

Description

This book is the perfect solution for those involved or interested in the operation of optical devices, networks or service providers. This reference book explains the latest technologies and applications used in the optical communication industry, assists with the explanation of technologies by using many diagrams and pictures. It is a great reference tool that allows people to effectively communicate with other people involved in the optical communication industry.

The convergence of technologies and systems in the optical industry means more competitors and new industry terms. As a result, communicating with others has become an alphabet soup of acronyms and technical terms. The Optical Communication Dictionary solves this challenge by providing definitions of the latest technical terms and acronyms along with self-explanatory diagrams that are used in the optical industry.

Optical Communication Dictionary includes over 400 self explanatory diagrams. The definitions and acronyms were created by expert editors, our authors, and submissions from over 1,000 users of the dictionary. Because it holds over 10,000 definitions and acronyms specific to wireless, it is an oversized book. The definitions are easy to read without excessive personal fluff comments. In addition to the definitions, there are over 400 diagrams and 100 photos that help to explain and simplify the complex concepts.

This book is great for professionals, instructors, business leaders who need to find and understand terms specific to wireless technologies, products and services. This is a handy reference to have if you are new to the industry, if you are getting involved in new areas, or if you just want to find a diagram that helps explain to others the concepts you already know. It includes directories of key magazines, trade shows, and associations where you can find more information about the wireless industry.

To ensure this dictionary contains the latest definitions, 12 experts were used from different sectors of the optics industry to add and edit definitions. Many of the definitions were created using our technical books that have been edited by hundreds of industry reviewers. Diagrams and pictures in the dictionary assist the understanding of technical terms by providing functional and operational views. This reference includes:

Over 10,000 of the latest optical definitions
Contains 4,000+ of the latest industry terms and acronyms
Has 400+ diagrams and 100+ photos to help explain complex definitions
Includes directories of magazines, associations and trade shows
Covers fiber, free space optical and optical switching communication
Describes wave division multiplex systems
Explains SONET and SDH system terms
Defines FTTN, FTTC, and FTTH systems
Includes PON and FDDI definitions
