Routing in WOBAN: A Review

Asad Ali

Abstract—Hybrid Broadband access networks (WOBAN) are cost-effective and flexible solution to overcome the increasing demand of the access network. The back-End of the WOBAN being optical has very high performance both in terms of speed and bandwidth. This is not the case with the front end in WOBAN. So there has been lot of research and numbers of protocols were designed and numerous algorithms have been proposed to bring the performance of the Front-End at par with that of the optical part and to reduce the delay that occur for data in reaching from End-User to Optical Network Unit (ONU). So in this paper we review the various protocols and algorithms designed to enhance the performance of wireless part of WOBAN, the various approaches that are used to overcome the delay in the wireless part. We than compare all the approaches and algorithms in a tabular form.

Index Terms—WOBAN, access network, ONU
