- Maturity level: Level 4 - Forum Approved
This document results from a short study of the GPON technology by the mTOP architecture team, and serves a number of purposes. It is:
A vehicle for the consolidation of results of various studies into the support of the specific feature in the mTOP interface that have been carried out by interested parties working within the mTOP Architecture team
A summary recommendation to be fed to the PPC to help in feature prioritization decision making
A basis for the feature scope specification and mandate that will be given to the working team
A summary of the GPON feature with references that can be handed to the working team in mTOP to assist their work.
This study was carried out by the mTOP architecture team to determine the requirements, challenges, and feasibility of managing GPON access networks and the associated services they support.
After initial review by the PPC the contents of the document will be partitioned appropriately to provide bounding and scoping specifications for the working teams who will do the detailed development work.
