An excellent primer for students beginning to study the subject, this current edition provides a practical, real-world perspective on the fundamentals of fiber optic technology and optical communications. It examines the reasons that optical fibers are the preferred communications medium, surpassing copper wire in all performance measures. A thorough explanation of how fibers work is offered, as well as useful coverage of other related optical components and how those components fit into system-level applications. Premises (LAN), metro, 10G Ethernet, and long-haul applications are also briefly surveyed.

Great book, designs are well explained and the subjet is well covered in term of practical use. It stands as a great complement to theory books about fiber optics.
Review: Technician's Guide to Fiber OpticsUser Review - Katie Rizzo - Goodreads
Not light reading, not even mildly entertaining, yet somehow I'm able to focus and actually learn from this book. The author must be working some kind of miracle, or I'm finally that much of a geek. Read full review
