    Passive Optical Networks (PONs) are a preferred architecture for distribution of bandwidth in the access network. The BSIK Freeband Broadband Photonics Project(BBP) looks at the design of a flexible DWDM PON which can be used to increase the bandwidth provided to the user. We present a control and management scheme for such a network which operates with the IEEE Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) protocol. The design emphasis is on implementing such a scheme with a cost effective and practical approach.
