A hybrid cycle bandwidth allocation scheme with differentiated services support in Ethernet passive optical networks

A hybrid cycle bandwidth allocation scheme with differentiated services support in Ethernet... The Ethernet passive optical network (EPON) has emerged as one of the most promising solutions for next generation broadband access networks. Designing an efficient upstream bandwidth allocation scheme with differentiated services (DiffServ) support is a crucial issue for the successful deployment of EPON, carrying heterogeneous traffic with diverse quality of service (QoS) requirements. In this article, we propose a new hybrid cycle scheme (HCS) for bandwidth allocation with DiffServ support. In this scheme, the high-priority traffic is transmitted in fixed timeslots at fixed positions in a cycle while the medium- and low-priority traffic are transmitted in variable timeslots in an adaptive dynamic cycle. A suitable local buffer management scheme is also proposed to facilitate QoS implementation. We develop a novel feature providing potentially multiple transmission opportunities (M-opportunities) per-cycle for high-priority traffic. This feature is significant in improving delay and delay-variation performance. The HCS provides guaranteed services in a short-cycle scale for delay and jitter sensitive traffic while offering guaranteed throughput in a moderately long-time scale for bandwidth sensitive traffic and at the same time maximizing throughput for non-QoS demanding best-effort traffic. We develop analytical performance analysis on the deterministic delay bound for high-priority traffic and minimum throughput guarantees for both high- and medium-priority traffic. On the other hand, we also conduct detailed simulation experiments. The results show a close agreement between analytical approach and simulation. In addition, the simulation results show that the HCS scheme is able to provide excellent performance in terms of average delay, delay-variation, and throughput as compared with previous approaches. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

The Ethernet passive optical network (EPON) has emerged as one of the most promising solutions for next generation broadband access networks. Designing an efficient upstream bandwidth allocation scheme with differentiated services (DiffServ) support is a crucial issue for the successful deployment of EPON, carrying heterogeneous traffic with diverse quality of service (QoS) requirements. In this article, we propose a new hybrid cycle scheme (HCS) for bandwidth allocation with DiffServ support. In this scheme, the high-priority traffic is transmitted in fixed timeslots at fixed positions in a cycle while the medium- and low-priority traffic are transmitted in variable timeslots in an adaptive dynamic cycle. A suitable local buffer management scheme is also proposed to facilitate QoS implementation. We develop a novel feature providing potentially multiple transmission opportunities (M-opportunities) per-cycle for high-priority traffic. This feature is significant in improving delay and delay-variation performance. The HCS provides guaranteed services in a short-cycle scale for delay and jitter sensitive traffic while offering guaranteed throughput in a moderately long-time scale for bandwidth sensitive traffic and at the same time maximizing throughput for non-QoS demanding best-effort traffic. We develop analytical performance analysis on the deterministic delay bound for high-priority traffic and minimum throughput guarantees for both high- and medium-priority traffic. On the other hand, we also conduct detailed simulation experiments. The results show a close agreement between analytical approach and simulation. In addition, the simulation results show that the HCS scheme is able to provide excellent performance in terms of average delay, delay-variation, and throughput as compared with previous approaches.
