ERMES at ECOC 2014 - International Workshop

ERMES results will be presented at the Sunday Workshop WS5 - Is NG-PON2 an ultimate access solution? Is there anything coming afterwards?

ECOC 2014, Cannes, France, 21-25 September 

 

 

Next-generation optical access (NGOA) solutions are mandatory to keep pace with the steady traffic growth in residential, business and backhaul markets. The pervasiveness of high-quality multi-media applications paired with a shift from broadcast to unicast services calls for future-proof solutions which are scalable to per-user data rates in the (multi) gigabit region for residential users. At the same time backhauling and business applications require even higher data rates of 10 Gb/s and beyond. A single platform for residential, business and backhaul applications, the consolidation of local exchange offices, and the minimization of active field equipment are further NGOA drivers. They result not only in simplified network planning and more integration but also in reduced energy costs.

Due to the high transmission capacity offered by optical fiber (especially as PON standards evolve towards multi-wavelength solutions) PONs can provide high speed access at lower cost compared to bespoke point-to-point architectures, making it a potentially attractive solution also for high-end business applications (e.g. mobile back-haul, logical high-capacity links for small SPs, or any institution that used to be served by point-to-point leased lines). However, designing a PON access architecture that is able to satisfy the heterogeneous requirements of different services and applications, while maintaining low cost and energy consumption, is a challenging problem.

The aim of this workshop is bringing together speakers from system vendors, carriers and academia to create an open discussion. Latest results from research projects will be presented as well as current standardization efforts.

The following topics will be included:

What is NG-PON2? Is it sufficient?
Which multiplexing scheme is supreme? WDM, TDM, UDWDM, TWDM, OFDM…?
Is CPRI / mobile front-hauling possible in an access network?
What degree of SDN is needed and what are the control plane challenges in multi-service access nodes?
Multi-operator/multi-service scenarios: how to implement and operate the systems, what are the business model impacts on technology choices?
What type of network access protection is viable in such a shared but highly heterogeneous environment?
