Video MAC Protocol (VMP) in EPON based access networks. In triple-play (data, voice and video) service scenarios for such EPON based access networks, optical network technologies are expected to converge in the near future, since the fiber networks hold great promise as future broadband communication. Video traffic will likely dominate in triple-play service scenarios for each fiber networks. It is proposed to introduce and analyze the Video MAC Protocol (VMP) to efficiently deliver pre-recorded video downstream to consumers over a fiber network in presence of voice and data upstream and downstream traffic.
