    The IEEE Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) standard is a leading Time Division Multiplex (TDM) standard for PONs. The paper investigates the operation of an EPON based system in a Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex (DWDM) environment. It extends the concept of a multi-wavelength system from being merely a stack of independent PONs to that of a stack of a switched set of PONs. The functioning of the switching elements within the scope of EPON operation are investigated and qualitatively described. The architecture of the “Switched DWDM EPON�? system is presented.
