Abstract

Feature Issue on Passive Optical Network Architectures and Technologies

We propose and evaluate a resource allocation scheme for time-division multiplexing passive optical networks (PONs), which supports multiple service classes; dynamic bandwidth allocation for services with varying (in time) capacity demand; and bounded quality of service parameters for services with real-time requirements. Although several algorithms have been proposed in the literature considering several of the above objectives in isolation, our work focuses on the fundamental problem of trading-off between PON upstream channel utilization and strict delay and jitter bounds when supporting a dynamically changing mix of services with different requirements.
