About the book:

The field of fiber-optic communications has advanced significantly over the last three decades. In the early days, most of the fiber’s usable bandwidth was significantly under-utilized as the transmission capacity was quite low and hence, there was no need to apply techniques developed in non-optical communication systems to improve the spectral efficiency. But in recent times there is a lot of advancement came in this field. This book talks about A to Z of Fiber Optic technology.

This book grew out of our notes for undergraduate and graduate courses on fiber-optic communications.
