Passive Optical Network (PON) and Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) are two emerging broadband technologies for the next-generation (NG) access networks. Integration of PON and Mobile WiMAX might be an efficient solution to broadband network access that can take advantage of the bandwidth benefit of fiber communications, and the mobile and non-line-of-sight features of wireless communications. By leveraging the advantages of both of these access technologies combined on an integrated architecture platform, NG converged-access solutions can meet the demand for mobility, bandwidth, reliability, security, and flexibility. By combining the practically unlimited capacity of optical fiber networks with the ubiquity and mobility of wireless networks, NG Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) networks will enable the support of a wide range of emerging and unforeseen fixed-mobile applications and services independent of the access infrastructure. PON and 4G Mobile WiMAX integrated architecture enables differentiated bandwidth allocation to end users that can provide more network capacity at reduced operational cost as compared to other existing technologies.
