Passive Optical Network (PON) [112] is a set of technologies standardized by ITU-T and IEEE, although it is originally created by the Full Service Access Network (FSAN) working group. PON is a converged infrastructure that can carry multiple services such as plain old telephony service (POTS), voice over IP (VoIP), data, video, and/or telemetry, in that all of these services are converted and encapsulated in a single packet type for transmission over the PON fiber. PON consists of three main parts [63].
