Description

By the end of the decade, approximately 50 billion devices will be connected over the internet using multiple services such as online gaming, ultra-high definition videos, and 5G mobile services. The associated data traffic demand in both fixed and mobile networks is increasing dramatically, causing network operators to have to migrate the existing optical networks towards next-generation solutions. The main challenge within this development stems from network operators having difficulties finding cost-effective next-generation optical network solutions that can match future high capacity demand in terms of data, reach, and the number of subscribers to support multiple network services on a common network infrastructure.

Design, Implementation, and Analysis of Next Generation Optical Networks: Emerging Research and Opportunities is an essential reference source that discusses the next generation of high capacity passive optical access networks (PON) in terms of design, implementation, and analysis and offers a complete reference of technology solutions for next-generation optical networks. Featuring research on topics such as artificial intelligence, electromagnetic interface, and wireless communication, this book is ideally designed for researchers, engineers, scientists, and students interested in understanding, designing, and analyzing the next generation of optical networks.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Rastislav Róka (Assoc. Prof.) was born in Šala, Slovakia on January 27, 1972. He received his MSc. and PhD. degrees in Telecommunications from the Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, in 1995 and 2002. Since 1997, he has been working as a senior lecturer at the Institute of MICT, FEI STU, Bratislava. Since 2009, he is working as an associated professor at this institute. At present, his research activity is focused on the signal transmission through metallic access networks by means of xDSL and PLC technologies and through optical transport and access networks by means of new WDM and TDM technologies using various techniques of the optical signal processing. A main effort is dedicated to effective utilization of the optical fiber’s transmission capacity by means of DBA and DWA algorithms. Assoc. Prof. Róka is the IEEE Senior Member since 2016.
