Wiley recently published the 5th edition of the book “Cabling: The Complete Guide to Copper and Fiber-Optic Networking,” authored by Andrew Oliviero and Bill Woodward. The 1,320-page book has been “fully updated for the growing demand of fiber optics for large-scale communications networks and telecommunications standards,” the publisher said.

The book comprises two parts: the first covering LAN networks and cabling systems including cabling methodologies and current standards, and the second probing deeply into fiber-optic cabling and components.

The Electronic Technician’s Association (ETA) says the book can be used to prepare for its Fiber Optics Installer or Fiber Optics Technician certifications.

Andrew Oliviero is director of product line management for OFS; he holds a B.S.E. and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and University of Massachusetts, respectively. Bill Woodward chairs SEA International’s Aerospace Fiber Optics and Applied Photonics Committee as well as its Education and Design Working Group. He was a four-term chairman of the ETA.

The publisher has made excerpts available for reading online. You can read the book’s first 56 pages here.

The paperback version of the book costs $89.99 and the electronic version costs $59.99. You can find ordering information here.
