Dynamic bandwidth assignment (DBA) schemes for long reach PONs face a suffer from higher upstream channel idle time due to long round trip time (RTT). In ITU PONs, the DBA schemes; Immediate allocation with colorless grant (IACG), Efficient bandwidth utilization (EBU) and GPON redundancy eraser algorithm (GREAL) minimize idle time by sending bandwidth grants to the optical network units (ONUs) every downstream frame (DF). EBU further improves IACG by utilizing unused bandwidth (UBW) of other traffic classes. Sending the grant results every DF requires optical line terminal (OLT) to remember all previous grants sent to ONU during RTT and subtract them from the received queue reports. Since, both IACG and EBU assign the excess bandwidth equally to ONUs. Therefore, the OLT is actually not aware of the complete grant to each traffic class and thus do not subtract these completely from receiving reports. This leads to wastage of bandwidth and higher US delays due to over granting. GREAL resolves this problem by not utilizing the excess bandwidth which also leads to increased US delays. The proposed scheme in this study eliminates this shortcoming by allocating excess bandwidth to each traffic class completely at the OLT. Moreover, the UBW assignment mechanism of EBU is also improved. Simulation results show a 50-85 % reduction in delays of type-2 (T2) and type-3 (T3) traffic classes versus GREAL and IACG and up to 40 % reduction in delays for type-4 (T4) versus EBU.
