Abstract

The infrastructure to develop the next generation optical access network is the Ethernet passive optical network (EPON). Interleaved polling with adaptive cycle time (IPACT) is a common polling method of an EPON. However, the mean waiting time of packets (= the mean packet delay) with IPACT is large depending on the arriving time of the packets. In this paper, a novel media access method for IPACT is proposed in order to minimize the mean packet delay. The mean packet delay with the proposed method is also derived as the exact solution. This solution is based on the non-trivial simplification of the previous work on the analytical solution for general IPACT. We confirm a close match between simulation and our theoretical results and show the effectiveness of our method.
