The point-to-point LAN emulation and shared LAN emulation over EPON solution are introduced. Two different kinds of LAN function are placed in a single model named IULSLE upper MAC layer to simplify the design, whose functions like a bridge and can be attached to any device, whether a bridge, a router, or a host computer. A Logical Link is established between OLT and ONU which is identified with a LLID attaching MAC address. In this model, the function of RS sublayer is only processing LLIDs according by the MAC ADD and LLID table in IULSLE module, and MAC layer is as normal bridge. The main LAN emulating function is accomplished by IULSLE block making OLT operates as a bridge. Not only the hardware block diagram but also the actually circuit are accompanied in detail.
