We propose a novel suboptimal design algorithm for PON outside plant deployment. Under realistic restrictions such as possible fiber paths, splitting ratio of optical splitters, and locations of the central office and subscribers are given, the algorithm can automatically generate the suboptimal PON network in terms of total fiber length.
