Abstract

Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) is an emerging access network technology for delivering high speed broadband to the customers by utilizing Passive Optical Network (PON) infrastructure. It is capable to provide a point to point (P2P) or point-to-multipoint (P2MP) architecture with cost effective implementation as compared to the legacy copper networking solution. Apparently this technology could be considered as a conducive platform for providing various types of services and applications since the bandwidth dependant medium is no longer an issue. In order to ensure network survivability and reliability, a study on the network protection and restoration issues and methods has been conducted. In this paper, a proposal focusing on the implementation of FTTH distribution side protection and restoration scheme is made. The solution will be utilizing the defined protection and restoration scheme together with a developed distribution and customer side module. Conceptually, on the distribution side, an Access Control System (ACS) module will be installed and connected to the last stage of optical splitter in that segment; functioning as the main controller for the solution. On the customer side, a Customer Access Protection Unit (CAPU) will be placed just before the Optical Network Unit (ONU). Together they will provide the desired protection and restoration solution for the FTTH-PON network. These modules are transparent to the FTTH system and will not interfere with the operation as well as communication process. With that in mind, this paper will provide an analysis on the splitting ratio and its effect to the modules, and the entire FTTH system in general. Ultimately, the proposed method and results will be presented and discussed in the following sections with the idea of providing the first of its kind of protection and restoration solution in the actual FTTH environment.
