The passive optical networks are widely used nowadays. Service providers have many customers in their distribution networks. The most important thing for communication between the end unit and the control unit is an establishment contact. Design and measurement of the activation process between optical network unit and optical line termination is presented. In general, the service providers have a big split ratio (up to 1:128) due to the connection eminent value of the customers per optical line termination port in chassis. We present the simulation of the connection process for 16, 32, 64, and 128 optical network units and the measurement for single optical network unit (the GPON Xpert is able to read a single connection process). We compare our results in simulation discussion.
