The passive optical network1 has been shown to be a cost effective method of introducing fibre to the access network. However, the expected increase in demand for broadband services will inevitably mean that upgrades in capacity will be needed. Wavelength division multiplexing offers an alternative to increasing the bit rate. Two broad strategies exist for the implementation of multiple wavelengths on passive optical networks (PON), fixed wavelength schemes and dynamic wavelength assessment… Expand


Window-Based Permit Distribution Scheme for ATM Passive Optical Network
The purpose of the proposed scheme is to make the permit arrival rate close to the cell arrival rate, so, reduces the CDV even if under the various kinds of bursty traffic. Expand
