This paper investigates the design of protection schemes in an extended access network. The network is modeled as a stack of quasi independent logical passive optical networks(PONs), each operating the IEEE Ethernet passive optical networks (EPON) protocol. The dynamics of the network operation when protection schemes are employed are presented and discussed.
