Abstract

Recently, the IEEE 802.3ca Task Force has been working to standardize the next-generation Ethernet passive optical network (NG-EPON) to fulfill future bandwidth demands. NG-EPON allows an optical network unit (ONU) transmission to be scheduled on multiple wavelength channels simultaneously. This will increase network capacity up to 100 Gb/s, along with flexibility, as any of the channels can be allocated from the four wavelength channels, each having a capacity of 25 Gb/s. However, it also raises many technical aspects to be considered while deciding on an optimum scheduling strategy for NG-EPON (100G-EPON) architecture. This paper proposes a dynamic wavelength and bandwidth allocation (DWBA) algorithm for NG-EPON to schedule upstream wavelength channels while providing a low average packet delay and catering frame resequencing problem. An online scheduling framework with gated service grant sizing policy has been demonstrated in this work. The proposed DWBA algorithm’s performance is evaluated in comparison with legacy interleaved polling with an adaptive cycle time (modified-IPACT) and recently proposed water-filling algorithm-based DWBA (WF-DBA) algorithms. Simulation results confirmed the validity of the proposed DWBA algorithm.
