This paper describes optical access networks focusing on passive optical network (PON) technologies from a technical point of view. Optical access networks have been applied to fiber-to-the-home as a driving force of broadband services and their use will continue growing in the near future. They will be applied as an aggregate component of broadband wireless networks. This paper also addresses solutions for their application.
