Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the investigation of the traffic throughput performance of passive optical networks using both time division multiplexing (TDM) and asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) transmission techniques. In particular discrete event computer simulation techniques are utilized to study the performance of these networks under asymmetric traffic loading conditions. The performance characteristics obtained demonstrate the degradation of the network traffic throughput using TDM, whereas ATM transmission proves resilient to even high levels of asymmetric traffic loading on the passive optical network.
