Tremendous technical advances in personnel know-how, optics, electronics and software to name a few, provide an excellent platform for present day networks to evolve to networks that are scalable and have ever increasing intelligence built into them. Over 25 chapter authors, collectively responsible for generating the standards and their implementations, come together in "Optical Network Standards" to provide a single source reference work to the specifications of networks at all levels, from components through systems to global networks, their management and services they offer.The book covers the recent advancements in:

- Critical standards and implementation from ITU-T, IETF, MEF, and OIF

- Optimization of SONET/SDH infrastructure for data delivery, GFP, VCAT and LCAS

- IP, MPLS, Ethernet and Fibre Channel services over public networks

- Distributed intelligent management and control, ASON

- Network survivability and recovery

- Timing in global optical networks

- Architecture of optical transport networks

Lead contributors and editors of the standards from networking power houses such as Lucent Technologies, Nortel, Marconi, Cisco, British Telecom, Agere Systems, AMCC, PMC-Sierra, Atrica and independent consultants, have come together to make this work a reality. The volume has been edited by Khurram Kazi, a networking consultant with over 17 years of real-world expertise in the designing ASICs and systems for SONET, IP, ATM, PDH and Ethernet networks. He has published papers and conference tutorials ranging from optical components, to ASICs, to Optical Networks.

Today, networks are evolving to be scalable and have ever-increasing intelligence built into them, thanks to tremendous technical advances in optics, electronics, software,a nd professional know-how. Optical Network Standards is a single-source reference work on the specifications of networks at all levels: from components through systems to global networks, their management and services they offer. It comprises more than 25 chapters written by expert authors who are collectively responsible for generating the standards and their implementations. Key topics covered here include: harmonization and design of networks to deliver on-demand services crucial to day to day operations, architecture of optical-transport networks, optimization of SONET/SDH infra-structure for data centric services, GFP, VCAT and LCAS, distributed intelligent management and control, ASON and GMPLS, and more. The authors come from powerhouse players as Lucent Technologies, Nortel, Marconi, Cisco, and British Telecom. Their work has been edited by Khurram Kazi, a networking consultant with over 17 years of real-world expertise in designing ASICs and systems for SONET, IP, ATM, PDH and Ethernet networks.
