This is the first book to focus on IP over WDM optical networks. It not only summarizes the fundamental mechanisms and the recent development and deployment of WDM optical networks but it also details both the network and the software architectures needed to implement WDM enabled optical networks designed to transport IP traffic.
The next generation network employing IP over optical networks is quickly emerging not only in the backbone but also in metro and access networks. Fiber optics revolutionizes the telecom and networking industry by offering enormous network capacity to sustain the next generation Internet growth. IP provides the only convergence layer in a global and ubiquitous Internet. So integrating IP and WDM to transport IP traffic over WDM enabled optical networks efficiently and effectively is an urgent yet important task.
* Covers hot areas like traffic engineering, MPLS, peer-to-peer computing, IPv6.
* Comprehensive overview of history, background and research.
* Presents all requirements for a WDM optical network (enabling technologies, optical components, software architecture, management, etc.).
* Performance studies and descriptions of experimental WDM optical networks guarantee the practical approach of the book.
Technical engineers and network practitioners, designers and analysts, network managers and technical management personnel as well as first year graduate students or senior undergraduate students majoring in networking and/or network control and management will all find this indispensable.


Kevin H. Liu is the author of IP over WDM, published by Wiley.

IP over WDM explores the coming together of communication and computer networking technologies: optical fiber using WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) and IP - the Internet Protocol.

Fiber optics technology is revolutionizing the telecommunications and networking industries by offering the enormous capacity required to sustain continuous growth of the Internet. Meanwhile, IP is rapidly becoming the dominant network protocol for a global and ubiquitous Internet.

In his pioneering text, Kevin Liu demonstrates how to fully exploit the fiber bandwidth capacity by WDM and the universal connectivity offered by IP, by carefully integrating the two technologies and optimising systems to play to their strengths. He presents IP/WDM architectural and internetworking models, discusses network control and traffic engineering and highlights issues specific to IP/WDM networks.

* Performance studies, simulations and case studies

* WDM network testbeds and products comparison

* Standardization initiatives

* A comprehensive review of optical communications, routing, signalling, and other optical network control and management functions

* A comprehensive review of IP over WDM networking architectures, IP/WDM internetworking models, and IP/WDM service models

* Detailed coverage of Internet routing, MPLS/MPlS/GMPLS, IP/WDM network addressing, WDM topology discovery, IP/WDM routing, IP/WDM signalling, and IP/WDM restoration

* Detailed coverage on Internet and MPLS traffic engineering, and IP/WDM traffic engineering

* Discussion on IP/WDM group communication, TCP over optical networks, and IP/WDM network applications
This detailed and precise presentation of a new paradigm in network engineering will appeal to all telecommunications and computer network engineers designing and building next generation systems as well as graduate students majoring in control and traffic engineering for next generation optical networks.
