Passive optical networks: A futuristic approach

Vikas Sharma, Sharad Sharma


This paper is to know about the meaning of passive optical network`s and its architecture. It explains the different types of passive optical networks and its uses for the present as well as future of the communication. Passive optical networks provide the huge bandwidth for the data transmission for triple play (video-voice-data) simultaneously. Requirement for the high speed communication networks is the high bandwidth for the data transmission without interruption. Passive optical networks provide this facility very effectively.
