This paper proposes a novel architecture for next-generation passive optical network (PON) based on electrical code division multiplexing orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (ECDM-OFDM) access. The feasibility of bidirectional transmission with the same wavelength has been experimentally demonstrated under this architecture. An error-free transmission of two PON channels has been successfully demonstrated in the experiment.
