Improving the data bit rate within the access network (known as the first mile) requires to replace the old copper-based cables; with its associated DSL & CM technologies; by fiber lines that can provide speeds up to 1000Mbps. The market demand for providing higher bit rate within the access network has raised the requirement of deploying the Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) to replace the old technology based on Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and Cable Modem (CM). This paper presents the design, simulation and implementation of the simplified Ethernet Medium Access Controller (MAC) together with the Point-To-Multi-Point (P2MP) emulation mechanism that can be used for Optical Network Unit (ONU) devices.
