Ethernet Passive Optical Networks is the IEEE’s (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) approved architecture of choice for the next generation of broadband access. Written by an author of the IEEE 802.3ah standard, this is the first book to explain the EPON architecture, analyze its performance, and annotate the standard. For any engineer or graduate student building equipment for broadband access or service provider offering such service, this will serve as the “authorized” guide to EPON.
Written by one of the authors of the IEEE802.3ah standard, this is the first book to fully explain the EPON architecture, analyze its performance, and annotate the standard.
Clearly addressing efficiency, performance, and implementation issues, Ethernet Passive Optical Networks provides valuable, annotated insights into all engineering-critical EPON topics, including:
“This new book by Hayes and Ganesh Babu brings new life to an old ‘academic’ topic…the book satisfies all requirements to become a landmark…” (IEEE Network, March 2005)
“This very well-written book is a good mixture of classic and advanced material…I believe that it will become the standard reference.” (Computing Reviews.com, August 13, 2004)
This book covers at an advanced level mathematical methods for analysis
of telecommunication networks. The book concentrates on various call
models used in telecommunications such as quality of service (QoS) in
packet-switched Internet Protocol (IP) networks, Asynchronous Transfer
Mode (ATM), and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM). Professionals,
researchers, and graduate and dvanced undergraduate students of
telecommunications will benefit from this invaluable guidebook.
An Instructor’s Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available online from the Wiley editorial department.
