In this paper, we propose a novel 10 Gb/s-based passive optical network (PON) over optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) system to realize the new generation full capacity optical access network which is easily upgraded from existing time division multiplexing PON (TDM-PON) without sacrificing the currently uplink bandwidth assigned to the individual user. 16-ONU (4-OCDMA x 4-packet) uplink burst transmission, an upgrade scenario by a factor of four of conventional 10 Gb/s-based PON, is experimentally demonstrated by using multi-level phase-shift-keying (PSK) super-structured fiber Bragg grating (SSFBG) encoder/multi-port decoder and burst-mode receiver. In the discussions, it will be shown that 32 users can be accommodated in 10 Gb/s-based PON over OCDMA system, and a key is newly introduced multi-level phase-shifted en/decoding, of which auto-correlation waveform can be preferably adopted in the burst-mode reception at 10 Gb/s.
