The passive optical network (PON) is thought to be the best candidate for fiber to the home (FTTH) to solve the access network bandwidth problem. A key problem in transporting mixed-media across PON access networks is to avoid data collisions in the upstream traffic and a sharing of the link by different data traffic sent by ONUs (optical network units). This paper presents performance analysis on PON MAC Protocol called framed pipeline cyclic service with dynamic allocation. Due to the contention-free in the available slot in this protocol which different from the contention-based access. Compared with contention-based protocol, this type of protocol has better performance for real-time data traffic.
