LTPC 2002
Course Objectives

1. To impart the knowledge of technology developments in Optical Communication with major emphasis on related theory/analysis of technical characteristics of Optical Fibre/Components, Systems and Network nodes to enable the design and selection of proper Functional modules/Building blocks intended for practical network applications. 2. To impart practical network knowledge based on Optical Communication Network Evolution viz. SONET in terms of Network Elements/Architecture, Network Management, Protection(Reliability),Synchronization . 3. To introduce All- optical signal processing based on Optical components and related network functions based on Multi wavelength Optical layers, with Assignment& Routing algorithms along with associated Network architecture. Introduce advanced topics on Photonic packet switching, Optical Transport Network(OTN) etc
