About the Authors
  • A comprehensive guide to optical fiber communications, from the basic principles to the latest developments in OCDMA for Next-Generation Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) systems. Part I starts off with the fundamentals of light propagation in optical fibers, including multiple access protocols, and their enabling techniques. Part II is dedicated to the practical perspectives of Next-Generation Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology. It covers the key building blocks of OCDMA, devices such as optical encoders and decoders, signal impairments due to noise, and data confidentiality, a unique property of OCDMA. This is followed by hybrid system architectures with TDM and WDM and practical aspects such as system cost, energy efficiency and long-reach PONs. Featuring the latest research, with cutting-edge coverage of system design, optical implementations, and experimental demonstrations in test beds, this text is ideal for students, researchers and practitioners in the industry seeking to obtain an up-to-date understanding of optical communication networks.

    • A concise self-contained guide to both the fundamentals of optical fiber communications and networks and OCDMA systems technology
    • Descriptions of the state-of-the-art and future-proof FTTH systems brings the reader up to date on the evolution of optical fiber communication network technology
    • Includes original cutting-edge research on OCDMA systems to inspire future work in this area
    • A rich source of inspiration for future inventions and developments

    "This book delivers more than its title seems to promise. Rather than simply presenting the key principles of Optical Code Division Multiple Access (OCDMA), it also provides a very useful introduction to optical fiber transmission systems."
    K. Alan Shore, Optics and Photonics
