Abstract
Deployment of Passive Optical Network (PON) as
a new generation of access network are addressed. The most
important elements in PON networks are the placement and
branching of outside, because its fiber installation and sites have
powerful effect on capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating
expenditures (OpEx). This paper estimates total CapEx for PON
technology using single and cascaded splitter strategies and also compares the results obtained by these strategies.
