The IEEE 1904 Access Networks Working Group (ANWG) uses an open and accredited process to develop standards for access networks. The Working Group technical expertise covers various optical access architectures based on Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON), such as fiber-to-the-home, fiber-to-the-business, and cellular backhaul.
The ANWG embraces the system-level view of a network and focuses on functions and protocols required for operating and managing the emerging multi-service and high-capacity access networks.
The Working Group is currently developing
Also, the WG is responsible for the maintenance of IEEE Std 1904.1 Standard for Service Interoperability in Ethernet Passive Optical Networks and IEEE Std 1904.1-Conformance Standard for Conformance Test Procedures for Service Interoperability in Ethernet Passive Optical Networks.
