1. “Cabling: The Complete Guide to Copper and Fiber-Optic Networking” by Andrew Oliviero and Bill Woodward

“Cabling: The Complete Guide to Copper and Fiber-Optic Networking” Book Review: 70% of the network problems occur due to poor cabling accounts. This book helps you to develop a skill to design and build reliable, cost-effective cabling infrastructure. This book is equipped with updated industry standards and a deeper look into fiber-optics. It helps the professionals meet the growing demands of large-scale communities that require fiber-optics networks rather than traditional copper. This book was written with the help and support of the Electronics Technicians Association (ETA).

2. “Fiber-Optic Transmission Networks: Efficient Design and Dynamic Operation (Signals and Communication Technology)” by Stephan Pachnicke

“Fiber-Optic Transmission Networks: Efficient Design and Dynamic Operation (Signals and Communication Technology)” Book Review: The book is divided into two parts, the first part is about the design of optical transmission systems. For solving the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, several methods for efficient numerical simulation are provided. These simulation ranges from meta-model based optimization to parallelization techniques. The second part of the book talks about operational aspects of optical networks. Topics like physical layer impairment-aware routing and regenerator placement are included. The book also tells us how the energy efficiency of a multi-layer optical core network can be increased by dynamic adaptation to traffic patterns changing in the course of the day.

3. “Fiber Optics Illustrated Dictionary (Advanced & Emerging Communications Technologies)” by J K Petersen

“Fiber Optics Illustrated Dictionary (Advanced & Emerging Communications Technologies)” Book Review: This book acts as an updated reference for instructors, hobbyists, and top-level engineers. This book includes concepts on fundamental physics, basic technical information for fiber splicing, installation, maintenance, repair etc. This book is well-balanced, well-explained and well-researched. It consists of photographs, charts, and diagrams that help in explaining the complex concepts.

“Optical Code Division Multiple Access Communication Networks: Theory and Applications” Book Review: This book focuses on the concepts of optical networks. For the implementation of optical signal multiplexing and label switching on backbone networks OCDMA technology can be used. This book includes the theory of OCDMA, the methods and technologies that are used to implement OCDMA encoding and decoding. It also consists of theory and methods of analyzing OCDMA systems with various receiver models. The concepts of OCDMA network architectures, protocols and applications are all explained in detail. This book is valuable for postgraduates majoring in telecommunication and photonics. It also serves as a reference for engineers in R&D and management of optical communications.

6. “Design and Implementation of a Fiber Optic Communications Laboratory” by Raymond Besiga
7. “Networking Fundamentals” by Richard M Roberts

“Networking Fundamentals” Book Review: This book covers basic concepts and usage of networking. It is useful for those students who are preparing for the CompTIA Network+ Certification Exam. This book tells us about media types and standards and how data is encoded and transmitted. For the understanding of students, each type of network operating system is also introduced. In the first chapter OSI model is discussed and also repeated in chapter 16. A complete detail of TCP/IP and subnetting is also well-explained. This book is useful for students to learn about troubleshooting, design, and install networks. There is also one laboratory activity in each chapter.
