Paper Abstract

The preventive congesting control method of ATM is rather intolerant of traffic profile distortions in the multiplexing stages. Thus medium access protocols for tree Passive Optical Networks can not ignore that the cell clustering introduced by the arbitration method can not be distinguished from peak rate violations by the policing unit, the result is either unwarranted rejections of conforming cells or unacceptably low utilization. By recording and efficiently transmitting the arrival timing of cells the proposed system maintains a cell jitter comparable to a concentrated FIFO multiplexer.
