Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation and Quality of Service Guarantees in Passive Optical Networks
Source: University of Zagreb
This paper gives an overview of current work and research conducted on passive optical networks, namely on dynamic bandwidth allocation and providing quality of service guarantees. The main areas of interest for investigating dynamic bandwidth allocation are grant sizing, grant scheduling and optical network unit queue scheduling. Regarding quality of service parameters - bandwidth, delay and jitter are of most interest. Future avenues of work are also pointed out.
