Abstract

A time-division-multiplexing passive optical network (TDM-PON) accommodating a time-division duplex (TDD)-based mobile fronthaul (MFH) contributes to the realization of a low-cost network. However, there are two issues with the TDM-PON. The first is the limited number of optical network units (ONUs) that can be accommodated because the statistical multiplexing effect is weaker than with the accommodation of a conventional MFH. The other issue is the discovery process for registering new ONUs. While operating the discovery process, the signals of the registered ONUs cannot be forwarded in the optical link, and a huge latency is added to the registered ONUs. We have proposed a technique for the effective utilization of unallocated intervals, which certainly occur in optical links. Secondary service signals are forwarded in the unallocated intervals to increase the number of ONUs. The discovery process also operates in the unallocated intervals to avoid any latency increase. In this paper, we report evaluation results obtained using the numerical simulations.
