Title: A SWITCHING DEVICE FOR TERMINATING A PASSIVE OPTICAL NETWORK
Abstract:
The invention refers to a switching device (ONT) for terminating a first, passive optical network (PON). The first, passive optical network (PON) comprises a number of optical network units (ONU) each of them being optically coupled to the switching device and each of them being coupled to at least one network device (PC). A unique identifier (LLID) within the first network is assigned to each of the number of optical network units (ONU) and an Ethernet address is assigned to each of the network devices (PC). A switching element (LS) is coupled to the number of optical network units (ONU) of the passive optical network (PON), wherein the switching element (LS) is adapted to process all network traffic within the passive optical network (PON). An Ethernet switching element (ES) is connected to a second communication network (IN) being based on the internet protocol, wherein the Ethernet switching element (ES) is adapted to process all other traffic being addressed to a device of the communication network (IN).
