Abstract (40-Word Limit): The migration towards a 20 Gb/s quaternary TDM-PAM passive optical network with chirped and non-linear optical transmitters is experimentally studied. We show that a loss budget of 27.3 dB is compatible together with a packet power ratio of 10 dB between loud and soft ONU.
