Abstract
This paper presents the key features of the emerging Next Generation Passive Optical Network (NG-PON) and IEEE 802.16m based Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) networks to build a unified cost effective next generation hybrid Fiber-Wireless network. NG converged-access solutions can meet the demand for cost, mobility, bandwidth, reliability, security, and flexibility. NG-PON and 4th Generation (4G) Mobile WiMAX unified architecture enables differentiated bandwidth allocation to end users and can provide more network range and capacity at reduced operational cost. The concept of hybrid optical network unit and advanced base station (ONU-ABS) simplifies the network architecture and can save some installation and operational costs.
