Triple Play Services Over Ethernet-Passive Optical Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In today's internet enabled world, customers increasingly require voice, video and data services. Combined, these are termed Triple Play services. This paper focuses on EPON as a solution to this requirement as an architecture that combines the benefits of optic fiber networks with Ethernet. EPONs carry Ethernet frames at normal Ethernet speeds. The EPON architecture employs a single fiber from the Central Office [CO] to passive components like a passive optical splitter which distributes the signal to various subscriber nodes in a certain geographically limited area.
