Protocol design for energy efficient OLT transmitter in TWDM-PON guaranteeing SLA of up-stream and down-stream traffic

by   Sourav Dutta, et al.

Environmental and economic concerns promote research on designing energy-efficient Time and Wavelength Division Multiplexed Ethernet Passive Optical Network (TWDM-EPON), which is the future extension to TDM-EPON. In TDM-EPON, a plethora of research is already present to achieve energy savings at Optical Network Units (ONUs) which can easily be applied for TWDM-EPON ONUs. However, TWDM-EPON provides an additional opportunity for saving energy at the Optical Line Terminal (OLT). All existing protocols have primarily been designed for saving energy at the OLT receivers. The protocols to save energy at the OLT receives depends only on the Up-Stream(US) traffic scheduling while its transmitter counterpart depends on both US and Down-Stream (DS) scheduling since the OLT transmits GATE message along with DS traffic. The US and DS scheduling have a basic difference. The MAC protocol doesn't allow scheduling of US traffic of an ONU after its REPORT arrival at multiple disjoint time slots. However, this restriction is absent for DS traffic and hence, the grant-size of an ONU can be partitioned and every part can be scheduled at different times. In this paper, we propose a method for saving energy at the OLT transmitters in TWDM-EPON while satisfying the SLAs. This includes a heuristic algorithm to partition the DS grant and schedule them. Through extensive simulations, we demonstrate that the proposed method provides a significant improvement in energy efficiency as compared to existing protocols (up to 45
