This paper presents a teletraffic study that evaluates the benefits of a passive optical access network, fix/mobile, by multiplexing wavelength division (WDM-PON) in which it is appreciated the impact of including extra wavelengths channels for the transmission of multicast services versus the multicast transport service using replicated unicast connections. The conclusion is that under heavy bulk-data traffic, the nominal data rate and tolerated efficiency are defined by the maximum number of out-of-profile users permitted for every multicast solution. Specifically, for the high values of efficiency the channels of extra wavelength avoid the need of multicast wavelengths used only when there is a fraction (significantly small) of out-of-profile users (5%).
