Media Access Control and Resource Allocation For Next Generation Passive Optical Networks

by Nirwan Ansari, Jingjing Zhang

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology Series

Media Access Control and Resource Allocation For Next Generation Passive Optical Networks Synopsis

This book focuses on various Passive optical networks (PONs) types, including currently deployed Ethernet PON (EPON) and Gigabit PON (GPON) as well as next generation WDM PON and OFDM PON. Also this book examines the integrated optical and wireless access networks. Concentrating on two issues in these networks: media access control (MAC) and resource allocation. These two problems can greatly affect performances of PONs such as network resource utilization and QoS of end users. Finally this book will discuss various solutions to address the MAC and resource allocation issues in various PON networks.
