The IEEE P1904.1 Project is sponsored
by the Standards Development Board
of the IEEE Communications Society
Purpose of the Standard
To build upon the IEEE 802.3ah (1G-EPON) and IEEE 802.3av (10G-EPON) Physical layer and Data Link layer standards and create a system-level and network-level standard, thus allowing full “plug-and-play” interoperability of the transport, service, and control planes in a multi-vendor environment.
Scope of the Standard
This standard describes the system-level requirements needed to ensure service-level, multi-vendor interoperability of Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) equipment. The specifications complement the existing IEEE Std. 802.3 and IEEE Std. 802.1 standards which ensure the interoperability at the Physical layer and Data Link layer. Specifically included in the proposed work are:
  • EPON system-level interoperability specifications covering equipment functionality, traffic engineering, and service-level QoS/CoS mechanisms;
  • Management specifications covering: equipment management, service management, and power utilization.
