Passive Optical Networks (PON) are thought to be the next step in the development of access networks and providing broadband access in the ”last mile” area. Ethernet PONs (EPONs) are gaining the most attention from industry as they offer a highly flexible, cost effective solution. In this paper, we present a new approach to the problem of optimal bandwidth(More)
Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPONs) have attracted considerable attention from industry as they offer a simple, highly flexible and cost effective solution to the problem of providing broadband access to a customer. In this paper, a new approach to bandwidth allocation in EPONs is presented where the Optical Line Terminator (OLT) has full control over(More)
Passive Optical Networks are thought to be the next step in the development of Access Networks and providing broadband access in the ”last mile” area. Ethernet PONs (EPON) gain the most attention from the industry as they offer highly flexible, cost effective solution. In this paper we propose algorithms that provide Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation and shift(More)
Traffic simulation can be very computationally intensive, especially for microscopic simulations of large urban areas (tens of thousands of road segments, hundreds of thousands of agents) and when real-time or better than real-time simulation is required. For instance, running a couple of what-if scenarios for road management authorities/police during a(More)
Fiber based access networks can deliver performance that can support the in­ creasing demands for high speed connections. One of the new technologies that has emerged in recent years is Ethernet Passive Optical Networks. The key fea­ tures of this approach are the simplicity of the architecture and compatibility with existing Ethernet based local area(More)
