I have been reading and watching some information regarding fiber networks and their deployment. One interesting point that was raised was that in a fiber network generally a DHCP server is used for the addressing but also for the bandwidth control of the end user in lieu of a traditional Radius server/PPPoE Authentication.
I have worked with Radius servers/PPPoE in conjunction with an ADSL network and this is the setup I am familiar with, however, as we move closer to fiber deployment I am considering how I would go about managing a users bandwidth/group of users bandwidth without using Radius/PPPoE.
Can someone point me in the direction of how this is currently being achieved.
For further info I am looking at using SDN switches running Cumulus Linux.
As always I apologise if I am rambling or making no sense
To clarify further I am looking at this from a service provider perspective. I am unsure as to what tools are currently being used to limit the end user to a particular speed/tariff when removing the Radius server ie the AAA/ACL. For example I want to limit customers a,b,c to xDown and xUp.
One of the video's I have seen is the following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggxI-lpk41I
Hopefully I have made the situation clearer and not worse.
