3The Role of the ITU in Standardization The International Telecommunication Union (www.itu.int),headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland,within United Nations Systemgovernments 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 ITUFrom an operator's perspective, cost reduction is the key motivator for standardsInteroperability 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.

VDSL and fiber will require large investments in infrastructure which is likely to slow up the rate of increase”.Price declines with speed increases mean that the turnover is likely to remain static. Some value-add can be expected if a new ‘killer’ service emerges.Source: “Next generation Broadband in Europe: The Need for Speed” Heavy Reading Report, Vol. 3 No 5 March 2005See Notes
6Fiber Access Systems- BT Perspective Fiber to the premises (P2P, from CO)Existing deployment for businesses over 3km and 2 Mbit/sIncremental deployment has high cost and long ‘lead’ timesChurn leads to stranded assetsDuct network insufficient for ubiquitous coverageWhile copper stays in placeFiber to the cabinet/VDSL2In BT trialsReuse of copper offers lower CapEx than FTTPOpEx costs under investigation in trialsCapacity is reach dependentSubtended MSANs or Fiber could solve thisCO fed fibers are most likely to be usedFiber to the premises (PON)G-PON (e.g. 2.4/1.2 Gbit/s), favoured for limited use in 21CNLower CapEx and OpEx than (P2P) if deployed over whole areasPON/OLT can act as a traffic concentrator (QoS, possible)
7Active Optical Networks (P2P from COs/Cabs) - an alternative to PON AONs deployed in parts of Europe by CLECs, approx 500k subscribersP2P can give more capacity than shared access systemsBetter future-proofingUpgradesOnly affect one customerRequire no changes to external plantShared access systems seem to date quicklyE.g. Cable systems are difficult to upgrade, outside plant needs changingShared access not needed with SDV (no broadcasting needed now)Service and Network Management is a concern for operators/standardsExcept SDH when used for direct connection to customersG.985 adds limited network management functionality to Ethernet over fiber

Each contains 27 grantsUpstream Frame = 53 cells per frame (aligned by ranging)The encryption algorithm recommended is the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). It is a block cipher that operates on 16 byte (128 bit) blocks of data. It accepts 128, 192, and 256 byte keys. This algorithm is described in documents published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the USA.Normal ranging procedure.The maximum round-trip delay of about 200 µs (equal to 20 km optical fiber) is equal to 69 cells (56 byte-cells), so the equalization delay at the ONU should cover the delay variation from 0 to 32 000 bits (at Mbit/s).Before initiating the ranging process, the OLT sends an Upstream overhead message to indicate to new ONUs which overhead they have to use. Then the OLT initiates the ranging process. The upstream data grants are queued. After the ranging grant leaves the OLT, an upstream window is opened to receive a ranging PLOAM cell. The additional ranging grants or PLOAM grants, allow the ONU optical power set-up and/or the OLT threshold control or amplitude finding etc.ATMCell 1ATMCell 2ATMCell 3ATMCell 533 overhead bytes for guard time, preamble and delimiter

12Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation A powerful conditional access mechanismallows queues at the customer-ends of the PON to be served according to the priority assigned to the traffic flowranging from TDM circuit emulation through to best effort (using spare capacity).also offers 'concentration on the fly',statistical gain for packet-based serviceslikely to become increasingly important as users of IP begin to expect QoS-based services on congested networksAllows bursts close to the maximum PON rateGood for high speed packet transmission

21Recent Updates to G-PON standards May 2005G 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.
22Outlook Capacity doubling every year! 1000-fold increase in 10 years.depends upon investment in new infrastructure,Varies between country, region and locationDependent on the economics and national strategy.Can the life of G-PON be extended?Bursting to 1Gbit/s could buy 3 years (to 2016)UpgradesWith the addition of new wavelengths and/or new fiberFaster TDM-10Gbit/sWDM/PON
23ConclusionsThe B-PON and G-PON series of standards are largely completeB-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-PONoffers more efficient IP and Ethernet handlingNext step is G-PON interoperabilityThe enhancement band is used by some operators to transport analog cable TVIn 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.
