Abstract
A hybrid WDM/TDM passive optical network (PON) is a promising candidate for next-generation optical access (NGOA) solutions. Several hybrid WDM/TDM PON architectures can be designed, each with a different degree of flexibility, going from fully static, over partially flexible to fully flexible architectures. A flexible architecture can serve several advantages, like energy efficiency, network migration and network extensibility. The more flexible architectures, however, are either more expensive, experience a higher power loss or are less secure. A question that arises is if a fully flexible architecture really needed. An important assessment parameter is the number of wavelengths required at a certain network load. In this paper, we introduce and compare two different flavors of flexibility based on the multicasting and switching functionality of different architectures. By exhaustive simulation, we study the gains of different variants of flexibility with different traffic models.
