Recent Progress on Standardization of Next Generation 25, 50 and 100G EPON

  • Harstead E.
  • Houtsma V.
  • Van Veen D.

In this paper an overview is given on the recent developments in next generation high speed PON. A summary is presented on the progress being made by the IEEE P802.3ca task force on the standardization of 25, 50 and 100G EPON. An outline of the physical layer specification for next generation high speed PON as well as MAC layer functions like channel bonding to achieve 100 Gbps line rates are discussed. Also the wavelength plan for 100G EPON is outlined and challenges like four wave mixing and coexistence with the various PON generations are discussed.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wang H.
  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
