Interleaved Polling with Adaptive Cycle Time (IPACT): A Dynamic Bandwidth Distribution Scheme in an Optical Access Network


While in recent years backbone bandwidth has experienced substantial growth, little has changed in the access network. “Last mile” still remains the bottleneck between a high capacity LAN or home network and the backbone.
