AON, one of the most deployed fiber access solutions in Europe, needs to be upgraded in order to satisfy the ever growing bandwidth demand driven by new applications and services. Meanwhile, network providers want to reduce both capital expenditures and operational expenditures to ensure that there is profit coming from their investments. This article proposes several migration strategies for AON from the data plane, topology, and control plane perspectives, and investigates their impact on the total cost of ownership.
