Electrical engineers Abbou and Choong evaluate the performance of optical fiber communication systems, focusing specifically on physical effects within the optical fiber that impose obstacles to transmission performance. They look in detail at important effects that largely determine the limiting factors of present-day long-distance optical communications systems. Their topics include a physical layer perspective on optical transport networks, the phase encoded optical code division multiplexing access system, optical time domain multiplexing-wavelength division multiplexing (OTDM-WDM) system components modeling, optimizing parameters for optimal performance, and network performance analysis with nonlinear effects.
