Research and Markets has released a new book from John Wiley and Sons, titled ‘Convergence of Wireless Wireline and Photonics Next Generation Networks’. The book offers a complete study of the photonics, wireline, wireless, and optical networks.
According to the book, the optical, wireline, wireless and photonics next-generation networks would become omnipresent like conventional telephone networks. The networks should offer sufficient network quality, quality-of-service requirements and high bandwidth to multimedia applications. The book discuses optical networks such as optical fiber, VLSI chips, photonic devices, and metropolitan and long-haul networks; wireless networks like RF transmission, 3G/4G cellular, wireless access, wireless access, wireless personal area networks (WPAN),and wireless local area networks (WLAN).
The key topics included in the report are metropolitan, core, and storage area networks; photonic and electronic component technology; wireless technologies and spectrum management; wireline technologies; and access and backhaul networks. The chapter covers next-generation integrated metropolitan-access network: technology integration and wireless convergence, UWB personal area networks MIMO extensions, Mobile WiMAX, self-coexistence and security in cognitive radio networks, power line communications and smart grids, dynamic bandwidth allocation in EPON and GPON, next-generation ethernet passive optical networks: 10G-EPON, and packet backhaul network.
