THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO EPON
Written by one of the authors of the IEEE802.3ah standard, this is the first book to fully explain the EPON architecture, analyze its performance, and annotate the standard.
Clearly addressing efficiency, performance, and implementation issues, Ethernet Passive Optical Networks provides valuable, annotated insights into all engineering-critical EPON topics, including:
- PON enabling technologies
- Point-to-point emulation
- Multi-point control protocol
- Error correction
- Performance analysis
- Discovery optimizations
- Quality of service in EPON
- Fairness vs. efficiency
There is no more expert or complete guide to understanding the performance and architectural complexities of EPON than Ethernet Passive Optical Networks.

About the Author
Glen Kramer, Ph.D., is a system architect for Teknovus, Inc., and an associate researcher at the University of California, Davis. He is a member of IEEE Standards Association and past editor of the EPON protocol clause in the IEEE 802.3ah "Ethernet in the First Mile" standard. One of the lead authors of the multi-point control protocol that became the baseline for the EPON architecture, Dr. Kramer has done extensive research on issues of EPON scheduling, fairness, and open access. He is the founder of EPON forum and teaches EPON tutorials and workshops at conferences around the world.
