Passive Optical Networks (PONs) were developed to satisfy the demands of high bandwidth and larger coverage needs of future access networks. This paper proposes a novel 'TD-sense algorithm' for improve the network performance and compares it with a standard DBA-GATED (Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation) algorithm. The algorithm is implemented by emulating an access network with the use of two 1G transceivers for 1G EPON. The algorithm is tested for triple play services that include simulated voice, video and data packets. The algorithm is found to maintain a better tradeoff between throughput and delay, than the existing DBA-GATED algorithm.
