Draft Standard for Ethernet Amendment 2: Physical Layers and management parameters for increased-reach point-to-multipoint Ethernet optical subscriber access (Super-PON)
|Publication Date:||20 May 2022|
This amendment to IEEE Std 802.3-202x defines Super-PON optical subscriber access networks, in the family of Ethernet passive optical networks (EPONs). Super-PON has a reach of up to 50 km and up to 1024 ONUs over a point-to-multipoint passive optical distribution network (ODN) through wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). A Super-PON ODN contains a passive wavelength router that determines the channels used by the ODN. This standard specifies the Super-PON Reconciliation Sublayer (RS), Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS), Physical Media Attachment (PMA) sublayer, and Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) sublayer at a MAC data rate of 10 Gb/s in the downstream direction and of 10 Gb/s or 2.5 Gb/s in the upstream direction.
