Abstract

In this paper, we review recent advances of the optical access network in the path toward Cloud-computing-related technologies, software defined networking, and network function virtualization. We present the new network management architectures proposed by standardization bodies such as the Broadband Forum and non-profit organizations such as the Open Networking Foundation and propose to use today’s Orange-France Operation Support System as a baseline to discuss different evolution paths. We also provide a review of recent advances in the optical line terminal (OLT) hardware evolution, from white-box OLTs to general purpose hardware, and identify the remaining related challenges, such as energy consumption and interoperability. We also show how Cloud-computing technologies in optical access networks could remove the frontier between network segments (home local area network, optical transport network, and mobile network) by deeply improving the synergy among them.
