As an inexpensive, simple, and scalable solution for broadband access, Ethernet passive optical networks (EPONs) have the capability of delivering integrated broadband services to the end users. A critical issue of EPONs is the utility of a shared upstream channel among the local users, and thus an efficient bandwidth allocation mechanism is required to(More)
NG-PON2 is the industry's first multiple wavelength (per direction), standards-based passive optical network system that is compatible with power-split optical distribution networks. The physical media dependent layer recommendation (ITU-T G.989.2) is the result of over three years of collaborative work by members of the FSAN and ITU-T Study Group 15,(More)
In this letter, we propose a computational model for calculating blocking probabilities of multifiber wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks. We first derive the blocking probability of a fiber based on a Markov chain, from which the blocking probability of a link is derived by means of conditional probabilities. The blocking probability of(More)
Passive optical networks are a prominent broadband access solution to tackle the "last mile" bottleneck in telecommunications infrastructure. Data transmission over standardized PONs is divided into time slots. Toward the end of PON performance improvement, a critical issue relies on resource management in the upstream transmission from multiple optical(More)
