Abstract

A hybrid CATV/16-QAM OFDM in-building network over a combination of single-mode fiber (SMF) and graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI-POF) transport is proposed and experimentally demonstrated with good qualities of service. In this system, a 1556 nm optical signal is directly transmitted along with two fiber spans (20-km SMF + 25-m GI-POF). Without using any wavelength conversion or bridge circuit between SMF and POF connection, error free transmissions with sufficient low bit error rate (BER) values are achieved for 2.5Gbps/2.5GHz and 5Gbps/2.5GHz OFDM signals; as well as good performances of carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR), composite second-order (CSO), and composite triple beat (CTB) are obtained for CATV one. This proposed network reveals an outstanding one with economy and convenience to be installed.
