The Service Interoperability in Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (SIEPON) working group proposed the IEEE 1904.1 standard for managing telecommunications networks.[1]


Ethernet passive optical network (EPON) is a technology for fiber to the x access networks, with millions subscriber lines. In response to rapid growth, the SIEPON project was formed in 2009 to develop system-level specifications, targeting "plug-and-play" interoperability of the transport, service, and control planes in a multi-vendor environment.[2]

The project was organized to build upon the
