Paper Abstract

For the future broadband Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) services, it will be revealed to be a myth that the low bit-rate uplink may be deployed, while only the downlink has to be high bit-rate. Current FTTH system forces the customers a stressful access in the uplink due to its MAC based on TDMA under always-on service provisionings. Without an abundant bandwidth of uplink available, peer-to-peer applications such as exchanging gigabyte files of uncompressed 1.2 Gbps high-definition (HD) TV class or even 6Gbps super-high-definition (SHD)class digital movies as well as teleconferencing and bi-directional medical applications such as tele-diagnosis and -surgery won't become widewpread. With a narrowband uplink, even non peer-to-peer customers will be put in a disadvantageous position by being forced to share the limited bandwidth with a limited number of bandwidth-hungry users.
