Optical Home Backbone Network

  1. 1. Optical Fiber Backbone to serve Multiservice Home Network Requirements OMB Workshop Benoît CHARBONNIER, Philippe GUIGNARD, Joffray GUILLORY, Anna PIZZINAT, Laurent GUILLO and Philippe CHANCLOU Orange Labs, France Monday 22nd March 2010, OFC 2010

  3. 3. Present and Future Services and Applications See deliverable D1.1p on ALPHA website (www.ict-alpha.eu) Basic Telecommunication – Mail, ToIP, SMS Internet based Services – Browsing, Streaming, P2P… Video Based Services – IPTV, VoD, Streaming, Innovative Video Formats… Online Virtual Environments – Games, Social,... Remote Technical Services – Thin Client, Storage, Home monitoring… e-Health – Electrocardiogram, hysterogram… 3 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom
  4. 4. Focus: Online Virtual Environments (and Gaming) The most stringent requirements in terms of Delay (& Jitter) – < 100 ms – < 50 ms in the future Network Latency is only the tip of the iceberg Player Game Server Motion Tracker Network Computing Network Renderer Eye Rendering ~50 ms 4 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom

  8. 8. How to manage the services heterogeneity in the home? Heterogeneity of services implies heterogeneity of signals – IP related Applications can be aggregated together and managed – BUT those cannot: – TV Spectrum (Analog or Digital, Terrestrial or Satellite) – Radio signals for future wireless distributed local connectivity Is it mandatory to use several parallel infrastructures? … How do we manage ATAWAD services? Unification of the Home Network infrastructure is a must ! Diversification of the end-connections is unavoidable 8 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom
  9. 9. Towards a unique multiservice home network A two layer architecture An optical backbone interconnects a central un multiformat switch ( MS ) who distributes the services to local terminals which act as "remote extenders" ( Ext ) extenders" The different services aggregated at the MS are all made available on their native interface at each extender The optical backbone is installed in the structured cabling of the house by a the end- trained professional and is not directly accessible to the end-user hence guarantying its long life span. 9 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom
  10. 10. Towards a unique multiservice home network Electrical multiplex optically distributed Exploits the large bandwidth of optical fiber such as Silica fiber Applications are electrically multiplexed and distributed over fiber Presented at ECOC 2009 10 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom
  11. 11. Conclusions Network speed will increase and delay will reduce – in the region of 1 Gbps within five years – Below 10 ms within five years Need to provide a unified infrastructure for the home network – Many services in parallel which shall be made available anywhere – All IP aggregation may not be the best solution Optical fiber as a backbone – Semi transparent distribution of the aggregated services – Long life span 11 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom

  13. 13. Rationale: Growth of Home Networks Today's Situation Bandwidth Requirements Downlink Uplink (HD)TVoIP On-line Games 100 Mbps is amply sufficient Today, WiFi (11a/b/g) + CAT cables or WiFi (11n) are suitable But what is going to be needed in 2015? 13 Using FTTH for Mobile Groupe France Télécom
