A colorless wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network with broadcast capability is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The polarization-multiplexed downlink unicast and broadcast signals are injected into a polarization-sensitive weak-resonant-cavity Fabry–Perot laser diode for uplink remodulation without polarization control. Transmission performances of downlink unicast and broadcast as well as uplink signals are investigated. Detailed analyses of injection polarization dependence, injection-locking range, and power budget are provided.
