Abstract

A novel WDM-PON system delivering bidirectional baseband data and broadcasting data is proposed and demonstrated. A subcarrier multiplexing signal is broadcasted to all users by modulating a broadband optical source based on a Fabry-Pérot laser diode. Reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers are used as colorless modulators for the baseband data at both optical line terminal and remote optical network units. Transmission performance including bit error rate of bidirectional gigabit data and error vector magnitude of broadcasting data of many optical channels is investigated. Additionally, the data rate for the broadcasting signal was improved by using an external modulator.
