Paper Abstract

A two-tier optical fiber local-access physical network configuration is proposed consisting of a passive, fully transparent optical fiber core and a mixed transmission media periphery for connecting all sorts of subscribers to the network. The two tiers are separated from each other by a population of active remote nodes. The possibility of implementation of the most common logical networks on the proposed infrastructure is investigated.
