Re: start optical networking

Hi,

I passed the Cisco Optical Specialist exam in March 2003, its quite challenging but passable.

Here is a list of study materials I used to prepare:

1. Optical Networking: A Beginner's Guide by Robert C. Elsenpeter, Anthony Velte, Toby J. Velte.

2. SONET Test #1 by Boson, good prep exam for understanding Sonet but no where near the real exam.

3. Next Generation Optical Networks : The Convergence of IP Intelligence and Optical Technologies by Peter Tomsu, Christian Schmutzer.

4. DWDM Network Designs and Engineering Solutions by Ashwin Gumaste, Tony Anthony, Tony Antony.

5. Cisco website. Anything on Cisco website dealing with their Optical Solutions.

6. The internet. http://www.nortelnetworks.com/products/01/sonet/collateral/sonet_101.pdf

Good document to read.

Hope this info is helpful.

Thanks
