First, thanks for the replies.

No problem.  Although apparently I was wrong on point 3.  :-)

[4] Some recent threads on NANOG discussed physical layer issues like
    SONET, SDH, circuit layout etc. Could somebody point me to             
technical papers / articles / books which describe fiber and           
copper technology in detail.

and saith I:
Ask in comp.dcom.telecom.tech.

Judging from the answers to this question, I gather I didn't phrase 
the question correctly. What I am looking for some is practical 
literature on fiber and copper technology - stuff which network 
operators and designers need and use. I would have guessed there 
would be an equivalent to say what the Stevens Books are to TCP/IP.

Sorry, misunderstood.

Hmmmm... Layer 1?  Physical?  Not sure.  The layer 2 stuff is covered
to some detail in _Digital_Telephony_, which alas, I can't give a cite
for right now, as it's at home.  Mail me privately, and I'll be glad

Also, the readers of that NG are likely to have other references to
hand; many work for IXC's, LEC's and switch mfr's.
