We present different mechanisms for downstream transmissions in the coax segment of Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) Protocol over Coax (EPoC). EPoC is the transparent extension of EPON over a cable operator’s Hybrid Fiber-Coax network. For managing and controlling such a hybrid network, a network operator prefers to have a unified scheduling,(More)
As bandwidth requirements of users in passive optical networks continue to increase rapidly, especially due to the growth of video-streaming traffic, the need to resolve bandwidth contention among competing users and applications becomes more compelling. To address this problem, we propose application-aware software-defined Ethernet passive optical network(More)
