Course Title OPTICAL AND TRANSPORT NETWORKS
Course Type Mono-Disciplinary Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 5.0
Semester First Semester
Course Description The course provides an ample overview of fundamental topics about transport networks based on optical systems. In the first part, a thorough primer of traditional digital multiplexing systems (PDH and SDH) is provided. The enabling technologies for optical transmission systems and networks are surveyed. An overview on the Optical Transport Network standard is presented, as direct development of SDH. Architectures of optical Next-Generation Access Networks and Passive Optical Networks are illustrated with deployment considerations. Finally, it is highlighted how packet data can be transported over optical systems. In the second part, the subject area of network synchronization is explored, providing a wide overview on such fundamental topics as jitter, clock models, network synchronization strategies, architectures and requirements in a variety of network environments. Finally, basic elements of traffic models and engineering are surveyed, for both circuit and packet traffic, up to covering advanced topics as self-similar fractal models to describe the behavior of packet network traffic. All course topics are presented by providing the necessary theoretical background, yet always highlighting most relevant practical and application aspects.
