Media Access Control and Resource Allocation
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.
Analyzing the MAC and resource allocation problems in various PONs including currently deployed EPON and GPON Covering FTTX concepts and applications and passive optical networks: principles and practice Discusses broadband optical access networks and fiber-to-the-home as well as next-generation FTTH passive optical networks
