Paper Abstract

The proposal addresses the wireless optical broadband access networks architecture by deploying mesh network structure, which could be the alternatives to FTTx (home or node, etc) architecture. Instead of fiber used as the transmission medium in the distribution plant, here we suggest to use the free space optic links to construct the optical mesh network. The practical connections are depending on the services provided. For Video-on-Demand (VoD) service, the final connection could use twisted pair by integrated VDSL technology. The distributed bandwidth can reach 25-32 Mbps per end user. In this paper we give some comments for designing a broadband access network using optical mesh network structure. It includes the traffic estimation, transmission network design and access node design suggestions.
