Description
The up-to-date fiber optics primer for all telecommunications professionals.
-- The latest trends in fiber optic manufacturing and fiber-based service delivery.
-- Covers fiber applications in long-distance, local telephone service, Internet and cable television.
-- No background in engineering, math or physics required.

Fiber optics is radically changing the face of communications. This book examines the issues faced by companies in upgrading to new generations of fiber technology. It also thoroughly examines key fiber applications, including video-on-demand, remote education, telemedicine and videoconferencing.

The book begins by introducing the background of tiber optics and how it came into being. It then describes tiber and cable technology in simple, easily-understood terms. Once readers understand the basics, the author introduces the challenges facing telecommunications service providers. Understand the differences between LAN, MAN and WAN networks, architectures and hybrid fiber/coax networks. Compare the current and long range service provider strategies, and understand the role of fiber technologies in enabling new services. Review important fiber applications, including videoconferencing, telecommuting, imaging, CAD/CAM, security systems, "smart house" technology, and more.
