Optical Networks

The module covers in depth various topics in high speed networks. It includes concepts, architectures, algorithms, protocols and future trends in three major technologies: WDM, SONET, and ATM. Major emphasis is given to WDM optical networks as they have emerged as the promising candidate for the next generation of terabit transport networks, and are receiving increasing attention from industries and research community. At the completion of this course, a student would have acquire expertise to develop network design techniques, protocols, and algorithms to maximize network performance, and to carry out research work in the fast-developing area of high speed networks.
