Photonic Networks (Semester Spring 2007)

Goals and Objectives

The intent is to provide the students with a sound understanding of the fundamentals of optical networks, including system architecture, performance, components and technology.

Course Description  

This course starts with the growing demand for bandwidth, optical network architecture, and how the network has evolved over time. It then moves onto properties of optical fiber, first generation, second generation and third generation networks and advance technologies wherein it discusses how DWDM works including a discussion on optical cross-connects and switches and certain emerging areas in photonic networks. The later part of the course has a strong emphasis on design of photonic networks.
