This book provides optical engineers at universities, or working in operator or service provider companies, telco equipment industries, or research institutes, with practical design guidelines for the new generation mobile transport architecture. Mobile network designers are introduced to the transmission modeling techniques for the design of a radio access optical networks. Wireless communication experts can learn of the many possibilities offered by photonics, such as optical beamforming and optical processing of radio carriers, which are appealing techniques when moving to millimeter waves, where electronics start suffering from bandwidth limitations.
The book is accessible to people with different technical background and with graduate skill level.
