Content

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDEBOOK TO NEXT GENERATION SONET/SDH, OPTICAL NETWORKS, AND NEW DATA COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL  The next generation SONET/SDH answers the demand for a communications network with improved data QoS, higher data rates, exceptional flexibility, efficiency and scalability, superb protection, and a data-friendly standard, by integrating the simplicity and cost-efficiency of the data network with bandwidth capacity and QoS of the synchronous optical network. 
Designed for communication specialists who need to understand the implications and implementation requirements of the next generation optical network.
Next Generation SONET/SDH: Voice and Data offers an accessible yet comprehensive introduction to this latest version of SONET/SDH.
In this, his fourth book on optical networking, Dr.
Kartalopoulos explains in simple terms the wealth of new protocols designed to optimize this new optical network, increase its efficiency, and decrease its cost.
Featuring only essential mathematics and supported by many helpful illustrations, the text: Explains and references the new SONET/SDH standards Details the many implications and improvements that the next generation of SONET-over-DWDM will bring Provides careful explanations of such optical systems as Data-over SONET, Packet-over-SONET, Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAST), the Generalized Framing Procedure (GFP), Link Access Procedure for SDH (LAPS), Internet and Gigabit Ethernet over SONET, Virtual Concatenation, the Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP), and the Multi-Service Switching Platform (MSSP).
In addition, the book explains other optical networks including the optical transport network (OTN).

  •     The claim of this book is to present "next generation" networks, however out of the 198 pages only 20 pages cover the enablers for these networks: LCAS and GFP. And even these sections are full of technological errors and are incomplete. Other sections in the book contain also many technological errors. This book contains more errors than his previous book "Understanding SONET/SDH and ATM". I get the strong impression that the author copy/pasted parts of the many references (20 pages!) without having the knowledge of the technology he tries to describe.A better book to read is: "Next generation SDH/SONET: Evolution or Revolution?" as this focusses completely on LCAS and GFP.
  •     I bought the book hoping to use it as an introductory text for GFP, VCAT and LCAS. After all that's what the "next-generation" SONET is about. The author first starts with explaining the T-carrier hierarchy (which is OK as a general introduction to TDM networks), but each section looks totally out of the context and no relationship is established with the rest of the text. Similar case is with the next chapter on packet networks. Finally, come the chapter on GFP. At the first glance it looks like the entire chapter dedicated to GFP may contain a lot of information, but when one starts reading it's completely disappointing. Most of the sections are incomplete, some are not even technically correct. Most of the sections are random excerpts from tutorial papers that author lists at the end of the chapter. One would be much better off getting the May 2002 issue of IEEE Communication Magazine and reading all the papers that have been published in that issue (the issue was dedicated to GFP). In the next chapter (where one would expect detailed technical tutorial on VCAT and LCAS), there is very little information. I was able to Google out more material on VCAT and LCAS then what I was able to find in this book. This is about a point where I stopped reading and regretted the money spent on the book. I do not recommend it at all.
