Abstract

To quickly meet the diverse requirements imposed by emerging new services on optical access networks, we recently proposed the new concept of “flexible access system architecture” (FASA), which features the disaggregation of time-critical applications. This paper introduces our activities on FASA along with related technical trends. As our key ongoing challenge, the modularization of the dynamic bandwidth assignment function in a passive optical network is reviewed, and information on its use cases, approach, and sequences is given. Furthermore, a reference hardware implementation of FASA for mobile service is described.
