Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) network is the future network configuration that uses optical fiber as backbone transmission media and enables wireless network for the end user. Our study focuses on the Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) algorithm for EPON upstream transmission. DBA, if designed properly, can dramatically improve the packet transmission delay and overall bandwidth utilization. With new DBA components coming out in research, a comprehensive study of DBA is conducted in this thesis, adding in Double Phase Polling coupled with novel Limited with Share credits Excess distribution method. By conducting a series simulation of DBAs using different components, we found out that grant sizing has the strongest impact on average packet delay and grant scheduling also has a significant impact on the average packet delay; grant scheduling has the strongest impact on the stability limit or maximum achievable channel utilization. Whereas the grant sizing only has a modest impact on the stability limit; the SPD grant scheduling policy in the Double Phase Polling scheduling framework coupled with Limited with Share credits Excess distribution grant sizing produced both the lowest average packet delay and the highest stability limit.
