Improved polling strategies for efficient flow control for buffer reduction in PON/xDSL hybrid access networks


Hybrid PON/xDSL access networks offer a cost effective alternative to passive optical networks (PONs). However, the drop-point device that bridges the fiber and copper portions of this network requires a power source potentially limiting where it can be deployed. To lift deployment restrictions, remote powering from a subscriber's power source can be… (More)
