Abstract

We propose a traffic prediction algorithm that reduces the packets delay in Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPONs). The algorithm relies on Multi-Point Control Protocol (MPCP) message and traffic monitoring at the Optical Network Units (ONUs) and utilizes the monitoring information to predict the accumulated burst size using higher order least-mean-square polynomial approximations. The simulation of the algorithm shows that it achieves a delay improvement of over 30% without any further modification in the communication and bandwidth assignment procedure of the EPON.
