EPONs are a low cost, high speed solution to the bottleneck problem of broadband access networks. To support point-to-point and shared LAN emulation, EPONs use the multi-point control protocol (MPCP), which uses logical link identification (LLID) forframe tagging and filtering between the OLT and ONUs. In this paper, ONU-based multicast or multiple shared LAN emulation for IPTV services is proposed using logical group identification (LGID). Using ONUbased VLAN services, EPONs can support separate and secure connections between providers and subscribers in a simple manner. Also, differentiated IPTV channel packages can be delivered through EPONs by implementing ONU-based VLAN and IGMP snooping mechanisms.
