Author Affiliations +
Integration of next generation wireless technologies i.e., WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) and or LTE (Long Term Evolution) with EPON is a brilliant concept that gives users the best of two worlds, wireless and wired. WiMAX gives users the convenience of mobility while integration with EPON gives theoretically unlimited bandwidth of fiber optic cable in backhaul. This paper investigates WiMAX and EPON technologies. At the end different scenarios of integration of EPON with WiMAX are discussed and optimal QOS mapping scheme is proposed for the integration of EPON and WiMAX.
