Abstract

An access network architecture using Passive Optical Networks (PON) with Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) is currently considered to be one of the most promising solutions to meet increasing traffic demands. Upstream traffic management in PONs is fairly complex, which implies using simulation methods to assess its effectiveness. This paper presents the characteristics of a generic simulation platform that is currently developed in our team to evaluate the performance characteristics of PONs DBAs and to assess the efficiency of their QoS support.
