Paper Abstract

Ethernet is being groomed as the ISP WAN media protocol of the future, both for home users and the corporate market. The need to develop a standard for Ethernet in the first mile (EFM) was given enthusiastic endorsement by main access equipment providers. Ethernet solutions in the first mile enable designers of hardware systems to use the installed base of 300 million Ethernet ports and merchant industry of chipsets and optics. Standardization efforts for this emerging technology are already underway. This paper describes the media access control (MAC) design for the tree-topology Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) system.
