Format: Hardcover
Compared with other GigE books, this book offers much better discussions on optical transmission and impairments. This will be great for people who likes to understand where certain optical interface and limitation are from.
On the network subject, it also offers clear and orderly description.

Format: Hardcover
If you are looking for an in-depth, complete introduction to Gigabit Ethernet (both copper and fiber) you have found the right book. In about 500 pages the authors give a professional introduction not only to the Gigabit version, but other Ethernets as well, talking about network design, MAC layer, cabling, and almost everything you can expect from a book so named.
