Introduction With the expansion of services offered over the Internet, the “last mile” bottleneck problems continue to exacerbate. Passive Optical Network (PON) is a technology viewed by many as an attractive solution to this problem [1,2]. There are several topologies suitable for the access network: tree, ring, or bus (Figure 1). All transmissions in a PON are performed between Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and Optical Network Units (ONU). Therefore, in the downstream direction (from OLT to… CONTINUE READING
