Quality of Service in Two-Stages EPON for Fiber-to-the-Home
Passive Optical Network (PON) is thought to be the best candidate for Fiber To The Home (FTTH) to solve the access network bandwidth problem. The authors set up Ethernet PON (EPON) system model and analyze voice and video performance through the EPON simulation model. A service-classified and QoS-guaranteed triple play mode is tested in proposed EPON system model. They present results of the detailed experiments and propose the differentiated service with different QoS level. In recent years, the rapid development of high speed Internet, IP telephony, Video on demand (VoD), IP Television, interactive gaming and video conference, etc. accelerate the requirement of bandwidth.
