Abstract

<div style="text-align:center"> <h1>Call for Papers: Passive Optical Network Architectures and Technologies</h1> <h2>Guest Feature Editors</h2> <h3>Pat Iannone, <i>AT&T Labs--Research</i><br /> Yun Chung, <i>KAIST</i> </h3> <p>Submission deadline: 15 December 2006</p> </div> <br /> <p>For over 20 years, passive optical networks (PON) have been proposed and experimentally demonstrated as a broadband access solution. The recent availability of standardized TDM PON systems such as APON, BPON, GPON and EPON, along with local facilities-based competition and increasing demand for bandwidth, have resulted in a flurry of PON deployments worldwide. This commercial interest in PON is driving increased research activity in next-generation TDM and WDM PON architectures, subsystems, components and related enabling technologies, which will be the focus of this <a href="http://www.osa-jon.org">Journal of Optical Networking</a> (JON) feature issue. </p> <h2>Scope of Submission</h2> <p>The guest editors are soliciting high-quality original research papers related to passive optical network (PON) architectures and technologies. Among the topics suitable for inclusion in this feature issue are:</p> <ul> <li>Proposed upgrades to existing standardized PONs (EPON, GPON, etc.)</li> <li> Extended-reach (enhanced optical budget) PONs</li> <li> PON transceivers</li> <li> Passive components for PON</li> <li> Outside plant testing for PON</li> <li> Protection and restoration for PON</li> <li> Performance modeling and analysis</li> <li> Experimental field trials</li> </ul> <p> To submit to this special issue, follow the normal procedure for submission to JON and select "PON" in the features indicator of the online submission form. For all other questions relating to this feature issue, please send an e-mail to jon@osa.org, subject line "PON." </p> <p> Additional information can be found on the JON website: <br /> <a href="http://www.osa-jon.org/journal/jon/author.cfm">http://www.osa-jon.org/journal/jon/author.cfm</a>. </p> <p> <i>Submission Deadline: 1 December 2006</i> </p>
