Paper Abstract

Passive Optical Networks (PONs) are a promising future-proof solution for the broadband access network. A topic to be considered in planning a PON architecture is the position of the branching devices (splitters). Some technical and economical considerations about the splitter location are given in order to evaluate the advantages and the critical issues of the different possibilities.
