We are currently witnessing an unprecedented growth in bandwidth demand, which is mainly driven by the development and proliferation of advanced broadband multimedia applications, including video-on-demand. high-definition digital television (HDTV). multi-party videoconferencing, online gaming and many others. These multimedia digital services are highly bandwidth intensive, and therefore require underlying access network infrastructures that are capable of supporting the very high-speed data transmission rates that are needed. It is apparent that today’s conventional broadband access communications networks (such as xDSL networks) will quickly become “bottlenecks” in terms of bandwidth provision. Hence, telecom providers are currently focusing on developing new network infrastructures that will constitute future-proof solutions in terms of the anticipated growth in bandwidth demand, but at the same time be economically viable.
Optical Access Networks and Advanced Photonics: Technologies and Deployment Strategies presents a comprehensive overview of emerging optical access network solutions to efficiently meet the anticipated growth in bandwidth demand. Covering topics such as next-generation networking, communication networks, and photonics, this book provides the latest technology trends in order to grasp the expected beneficial use of optical access infrastructures.
