Nothing Beats Experience. That's what Optical Communications Rules of Thumb gives you: 250 never-before-collected rules based on the authors' cumulative decades of experience in the field -- rules they often learned the hard way -- but that you don't have to. These rules of thumb provide instant expertise -- the ability to make quick and accurate judgments on the workability of proposals or proposed design changes, and the grounding to think on your feet in meetings. Just as importantly, they assist in the design process itself, giving you a feel for what will go and what won't, quick ways to verify your intuitions, and a firm base in optical and related sciences on which to build. More than a set of tools offering mastery of the nearly lost art of expert approximation, Optical Communications Rules of Thumb provides scientific erudition and practical engineering know-how. Covering optical communications from attenuation and amplitifers to SONET and systems, this is a truly unique work that can save endless hours of engineering toil.
