Recommendation ITU-T G.984.3 describes the transmission convergence layer for gigabit-capable passive optical networks – a family of flexible access networks capable of providing a range of broadband and narrow-band services, operating at the rates of 2.48832 Gbit/s downstream and 1.24416 or 2.48832 Gbit/s upstream. This Recommendation includes the specifications of the following:
• gigabit PON transmission convergence (GTC) layer framing;
• upstream time division multiple access mechanism;
• physical layer operation, administration and maintenance (OAM) messaging channel;
• principles and signalling mechanism of the upstream dynamic bandwidth assignment;
• optical network unit (ONU) activation method;
• forward error correction;
• security.
