2011 (English)In: BROADBAND ACCESS COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES V / [ed] Dingel, B; Jain, R; Tsukamoto, K, 2011, Vol. 7958, 795808-1-795808-10 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Access networks based on optical fiber can easily fulfill high bandwidth demand and cover large service areas. Fiber access networks are also scalable to meet the future capacity request. Among several alternatives, passive optical network (PON)is considered as the most promising one, because its passive point-to-multipoint architecture is characterized by relatively low deployment and operational cost. On the other hand, the passive point-to-multipoint feature in PONs also creates a number of challenges, such as efficient resource allocation and cost-effective protection. This paper provides an overview of the advances related to these two issues and points out the research topics that are still open and need to be investigated.
