The Role of the ITU in Standardization The International Telecommunication Union (www.itu.int), –headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, –within United Nations System –governments and the private sector members coordinate global telecom networks and services. –ITU-T Recommendations, such as G.982 (PON), G.983.x (Broadband- PON) and G.984.x (Gigabit-PON) are agreed by consensus and provide a framework for the implementation. –Question 2 on Optical systems for fiber access networks is the focus of activity for PON systems in the ITU From an operator's perspective, cost reduction is the key motivator for standards –Interoperability and second sourcing are also important for a de-risking the investment. From a vendor's perspective it is the assurance that products will satisfy the needs of a world-wide market.

Fiber Access Systems- BT Perspective Fiber to the premises (P2P, from CO) –Existing deployment for businesses over 3km and 2 Mbit/s –Incremental deployment has high cost and long lead times –Churn leads to stranded assets –Duct network insufficient for ubiquitous coverage While copper stays in place Fiber to the cabinet/VDSL2 –In BT trials –Reuse of copper offers lower CapEx than FTTP –OpEx costs under investigation in trials –Capacity is reach dependent Subtended MSANs or Fiber could solve this CO fed fibers are most likely to be used Fiber to the premises (PON) –G-PON (e.g. 2.4/1.2 Gbit/s), favoured for limited use in 21CN –Lower CapEx and OpEx than (P2P) if deployed over whole areas –PON/OLT can act as a traffic concentrator (QoS, possible)
Active Optical Networks (P2P from COs/Cabs) - an alternative to PON AONs deployed in parts of Europe by CLECs, approx 500k subscribers P2P can give more capacity than shared access systems –Better future-proofing Upgrades –Only affect one customer –Require no changes to external plant Shared access systems seem to date quickly –E.g. Cable systems are difficult to upgrade, outside plant needs changing –Shared access not needed with SDV (no broadcasting needed now) Service and Network Management is a concern for operators/standards –Except SDH when used for direct connection to customers –G.985 adds limited network management functionality to Ethernet over fiber
B-PON Broadband passive optical network – based upon 53 byte ATM cells with mini-cells in transmission convergence (TC) layer – Downstream grants control the sending of upstream cells – Rates up to 620 Mbit/s symmetrical and 1240/622 asymmetrical have been standardised Transport capability – native ATM – TDM (T1/E1) by circuit emulation – Ethernet by emulation Business or home –32 way split (some systems 64 way) –multi-casting possible Standardised in G983.x series in ITU
Business Drivers for PON
Broadband PON Frame Format Downstream Frame = 56 cells of 53 bytes PLOAM Cell 1 ATM Cell 1 ATM Cell 27 ATM Cell 27 PLOAM Cell 2 ATM Cell 54 Physical layer operations and maintenance (PLOAM) cells give grants to upstream ONUs. Maximum rate of 1/100ms. Each contains 27 grants ATM Cell 1 ATM Cell 2 ATM Cell 3 ATM Cell 53 Upstream Frame = 53 cells per frame (aligned by ranging) 3 overhead bytes for guard time, preamble and delimiter
ONU Management and Control Interface A management channel between OLT and ONU –Part of the baseband signal –Carried in the PLOAM cells Physical layer operations and maintenance –Accessible by the Network Operator via the element manager on the OLT –Allows the PON and services to be configured and managed Authentication, configuration and fault mangnet Service management POTS, Video on demand, WLAN,VLAN, Ethernet –etc
Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation A powerful conditional access mechanism –allows queues at the customer-ends of the PON to be served according to the priority assigned to the traffic flow –ranging from TDM circuit emulation through to best effort (using spare capacity). –also offers 'concentration on the fly', statistical gain for packet-based services –likely to become increasingly important as users of IP begin to expect QoS-based services on congested networks Allows bursts close to the maximum PON rate Good for high speed packet transmission

G Enhancement Band Downstream bands for B-PON – 1490 (basic band), 1550 (enhancement band) New laser was required for nm band Enhanced services in nm band – e.g. for broadcast services nm upstream band retained Blocking filters and/or triplexer needed for ONTs –To receive additional service wavelength(s) – e.g. Receive Accept Reject dBm

Recent Updates to B-PON standards Nov 2004 G Revised. Broadband Optical Access Systems Based On Passive Optical Networks (PON) –Includes two previous Amendments, A Corrigendum, and Implementers guide G Amendment 2, B-PON ONT Management and Control Interface (OMCI) support for Video Return Path, –Facilitates the use of set-top boxes originally designed for cable networks May 2005 G Revised B-PON ONT Management and Control Interface (OMCI). –All documents on OMCI have been merged into this revision, G and G through to G plus the Amendments 1 and 2 and Implementers guide. –New functionality includes mechanized loop testing for telephony and last gasp reporting G Amendment 2, A broadband optical access system with increased service capability by wavelength allocation –Industry best practice optical budgets for the 622/155 B-PON system 28dB Optical Distribution Networks for B-PON 27dB with Analog video service G Amendment 1 on Protocol Implementation Conformance Statements (PICS) for the OLT and ONT. –To show that the devices conform with G at the transmission convergence layer
Recent Updates to G-PON standards May 2005 G Amendment 1 to G-PON Transmission Convergence Layer. –Peak Information Rate and Sustained Information Rate parameters are now included and are analogous to ATM for alternative cell lengths such as Ethernet packets. –Multicast services may now be supported over GEM (e.g. IPTV). –(GEM is the generic encapsulation mode use at in the transmission convergence layer) G Amendment 1 Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Networks (G-PON): ONT Management and Control Interface specification. –Proposes management features on G-PON in support of Ethernet and IPTV service such as the IEEE802.1p priority mapper, GEM traffic descriptor, and support of multicast connection.
Outlook Capacity doubling every year! –1000-fold increase in 10 years. –depends upon investment in new infrastructure, –Varies between country, region and location Dependent on the economics and national strategy. Can the life of G-PON be extended? –Bursting to 1Gbit/s could buy 3 years (to 2016) Upgrades –With the addition of new wavelengths and/or new fiber –Faster TDM-10Gbit/s –WDM/PON
Conclusions The B-PON and G-PON series of standards are largely complete –B-PON has reached maturity with up to eight vendors with interoperable OLT and/or ONU. –The FSAN/Interoperability Task Group promotes standards conformance and interoperability among vendors. Recommendations in the G.984.x series detail G-PON, the latest generation of PON technology. –Increasing capacity to Gigabit levels satisfies customer demands for capacity in the range 100 Mbit/s (dedicated) and 1 Gbit/s (shared) –G-PON maintains the same optical distribution network, wavelength plan as B-PON offers more efficient IP and Ethernet handling Next step is G-PON interoperability The enhancement band is used by some operators to transport analog cable TV –In the future, as TV moves from RF-analogue to digital-in-band the enhancement band is expected to be used for two-way interactive digital services.
