9 © 2011 Scuola Superiore SantAnna InReTe 9 ITU-T G.Sup45 (05/2009) Solution to improve power conservation through reduced power consumption and other techniques within optical access networks First priorities: quality of service, availability and interface variety Second priority: energy savings during emergency (mains outage) and normal (mains powered) operations Results are expected to be applicable to G-PON, GE-PON, and to NG-PON

12 © 2011 Scuola Superiore SantAnna InReTe 12 ONU Energy Saving Potentials The energy consumption of an ONU can be reduced by –minimizing the recovery time of CDR circuit for decreasing the time ratio (T oh /T c ) –decreasing the power ratio (P s /P a ) Only by decreasing both the power consumed during sleep mode and the overhead time high energy savings can be obtained Expected energy savings with correlation of time and power ratios (1Gp/s TDMA PON, 16 ONUs) % expected energy savings T c =cycle time T oh =overhead time T sl =slot time P a =power consumed when ONU is active P s =power consumed when ONU is asleep PsPs PaPa
