In this paper, we propose new scheduling algorithms to improve the performance of the code division multiple access (CDMA) enabled next generation ethernet passive optical networks (NG-EPON). The original dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) scheme based on a round robin scheduling algorithm was originally proposed for the first generation CDMA based EPON where the network throughput and delay requirements per optical network unit (ONU) are relatively moderate. On the other hand, in the NG-EPON standard, the network capacity is increased up to 100 Gb/s and stringent requirements are applied to the packet delay. For this reason, in this work, we propose new scheduling algorithms for NG-EPON to assign a grant size on each upstream CDMA code in order to guarantee the newly required network throughput and delay performance. The first DBA algorithm is the first in first out (FIFO) algorithm in which the ONU requests are ordered in terms of their request arrival time. The second scheme is the reservation pattern (RP) algorithm in which each ONU starts transmitting its queue content in its reserved pattern of subcycles following a pre-defined pattern. The performances of the newly proposed algorithms are evaluated and compared. Results show that both newly proposed scheduling schemes can significantly improve the network performance in terms of the packet delay, jitter, and throughput. In addition, the results are compared to many dynamic wavelength and bandwidth allocation (DWBA) algorithms. The results show that the performances are comparable and that CDMA can be a good alternative for WDM for multi-channels based NG-EPON.
