Abstract

The construction of optical access networks is one of key issues to provide new broad-band services and emulation of legacy services. Passive optical network (PON) technologies realize sophisticated and economical optical access networks for these purposes. This paper summarizes requirements and technical and marketing trends for optical access networks. It also presents advantages of networking by PON technologies for optical access networks. Moreover, it clarifies issues to install and operate PON base optical access networks and proposes solutions for these issues.
