High Speed (100G) Access NetworksPublished online: Sep 18, 2018
Passive optical networks are currently the most promising solution for access networks. Increasing bandwidth requirements and big data applications need to a huge bandwidth. Nowadays, gigabit passive optical networks do not seem to be suitable for these purposes. This paper is focused on describing the development, parameters, and needs for High Speed Access Networks (such as 100G EPON). The simulations with current wavelengths plans are presented. For simulations, we used VPITransmissionMakerTM 9.7. Our goal was to create a rudimentary bidirectional PON system with one ONU and do several simulation scenarios by artificially increasing loss in a splitter for simulating more ONUs. Our following results consist of BER values and eye diagrams for each simulation scenario and proof that 100G EPON networks are most promising networks for the future.
