A novel broadcasting scheme for WDM-PON based fiber access networks is proposed in this paper and downstream system experiments has been demonstrated. The broadcasting data is generated via subcarrier modulation technique. By using a delayed interferometer, the un-modulated continuous-wave carrier is separated and acts as the seeder for FP-LD injection locking and direct modulation, which is compatible with current WDM-PON infrastructures. In experiments, 2.5 Gb/s broadcasting data and 2.5 Gb/s point-to-point data are successfully integrated and transmitted in a typical WDM-PON structure with good performance.
