Abstract

We have evaluated an attractive access network restoration candidate employing an optical matrix switch called an Optical Multifunction Switch (OMS). Here, we describe the operation and implementation of the device architecture and characterise its diversion capacity and flexibility in a proposed Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) intelligent fiber-to-the-home (i-FTTH) network. A set of fifteen 2×2 optical switches was designed to allow multiple switching signal routes especially in the drop region (optical splitter to Optical Network Units (ONU)), thus improving the survivability of i-FTTH applications. We have discussed a sample application of the OMS in which this device could perform similar function as the customer-access protection unit (CAPU) proposed earlier and hence a performance comparison analysis is discussed. The flexibility of the device is demonstrated by its rerouting performance in the CAPU system and its protection mechanism. The biterror- rate performance of networks based on three faulty conditions were studied and compared, and OptiSystem, Inc. software was used to demonstrate the feasibility of this device. Our results were obtained by observing the eye diagrams, BER effects, input and output power and the maximum distance of fiber achieved.
