We derive a closed-form expression for the message collision probability in
the IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) registration scheme. The
expression obtained, although based on an approximation, shows a good match with
simulation results. We use the results of our analysis to compute the size of the
most efficient contention window and the most efficient number of nodes serviced by
a given window size.
