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.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
