Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation with High Efficiency for EPONs

  title={Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation with High Efficiency for EPONs},
  author={Jun Zheng and Shaoren Zheng},
  journal={2006 IEEE International Conference on Communications},
This paper proposes an efficient bandwidth allocation algorithm for an EPON system. The proposed algorithm is based on the multipoint control protocol (MPCP) defined by the IEEE 802.3ah Task Force and incorporates a dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) scheme that makes use of the excessive bandwidth of lightly loaded ONUs to meet the bandwidth demand of heavily loaded ONUs. To improve bandwidth utilization under high traffic load, an effective scheduling control mechanism is also incorporated to… CONTINUE READING
