Scalable Advanced Ring-based passive
Dense Access Network Architecture
SARDANA project aims at extending the limits of passive FTTH networks in terms of
scalability, resilience and minimum infrastructure requirements.
Main Objectives
At A Glance:
SARDANA
Scalable Advanced Ring-based
passive Dense Access Network
Architecture
Fibre-to-the-Home networks constitute a fundamental segment
with the required potential to match the huge capacity of
transport networks with the new user communication
demands, where deeper research is still to be performed.
Network access infrastructure investments are driven by
increased number of users requiring broadband access to
services enabled by the Internet
infrastructure and applications. Fixed

(PONs) is a cost efficient way to build
fibre access and SARDANA is a way to
demonstrate how the huge bandwidth
available through the fibre access can be
exploited in a cost efficient and reliable
manner. The key performances that
SARDANA project aims at radically
improve are the scalability and the
robustness, since constitute pillars of
such a cost-sensitive segment:

o
Scalability is reached by means of
cascadable remote nodes in a new
hybrid architecture, allowing smoothest grow and
migration, and the new adoption of remotely-pumped
amplification, WDM/TDM overlay, and cascadable remote
nodes in a new hybrid architecture, while keeping the
passiveness of the PON and reducing civil work
investments.
o
The resulting network is able to serve more than 1000
users with symmetrical several hundred Mbit/s, spread
along distances up to 100 km, at 10Gbit/s, in a flexible
way, also supporting multi-operator service.
o
Robustness is achieved by means of the development of
new monitoring and electronic compensation strategies
over the PON, as well as by the passive central-ring
protection.

The intensive use of the optical transparency and of the latest
opto-electronic technologies enables to expand the PON performances and functionality while minimizing the
infrastructure requirements at both urban and rural areas. SARDANA will set an evolutionary path for G/EPON and incorporate functionalities of metropolitan networks, envisaging access-metro convergence.
In order to fulfil the multi-disciplinary tasks and to
reach the challenges, the SARDANA partners join

The work in SARDANA is organized into several
inter-related Work-Packages:
1. WP-Mg: Project Management and Outcomes.
2. WP-Ar: Network Architecture.
3. WP-Mc: MAC and Higher Layers
4. WP-Tr: Transmission and modulation formats.

7. WP-Dm: Demonstrator and Field-trial.
During the project live, a Sardana Network
demonstrator will be built, engineered and multilayer operated; its main features will be also
demonstrated in a field trial, delivering new
generation bidirectional services to residential
users.
o Establishment of new intelligent monitoring
and compensation strategies to combat
impairment and faults for a trusted robust
PON.
o Implementation of the MAC, the Control and
Management planes, to demonstrate basic
resiliency, wavelength balancing and improved
service-aware traffic control.
o Economic effectiveness of the extended PON
approach.
o Demonstration and field-trial of the SARDANA
network.
o Recommendation for a technical solution of a
multi-operator shared infrastructure as an input
to European and National Regulatory bodies.
o SARDANA will result with experience and IPR
that helps European industry and research to
develop a competitive advantage.
