Performance Evaluation of a proposed EPON-WiMAX Converged Network Architecture

Vol. 22  No. 11  pp. 712-716


For the next generation of communication networks, WIMAX and EPON (Ethernet Based Passive Optical Networks) are two potential broadband access technologies. The EPON function allows the backhaul of WiMAX Networks to achieve increased bandwidth and enhanced spectral efficiency. Some access architectures for the combination of EPON and WiMAX technologies have been proposed in this chapter. The architectures arising from this can benefit dually from the increased bandwidth of fiber optics and wireless communication's mobility. This concept was based on the proposal of an integrated architecture that reduces the design and operating expenses for the new access networks.
