This paper addresses the problem of providing bandwidth and delay guarantees in passive optical networks. To resolve this problem we propose an algorithm that provides absolute bandwidth and delay bound guarantees. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm does not breach bandwidth and delay bounds for guaranteed service traffic even under the highest loads. Additionally, we analyze the lower bound for providing delay guarantees.
