Paper Abstract

A passive optical network (PON) is a promising candidate to efficiently accommodate the packet-based Mobile Fronthaul (MFH) in 5G and beyond-5G base stations. However, to apply the PON to the MFH, there are some technical issues to be resolved, such as large uplink latency and wavelength drift. This paper describes PON control technology for providing low-latency transmission and that for providing remote wavelength maintenance in the MFH with the PON. Experiments show that our technologies can achieve the less than 50 μs bandwidth-control latency and the wavelength-drift mitigation.
