We present a colorless network-embedded self-tuning transmitter assisted by a remotely pumped erbium-doped double-pass amplifier located at the remote node for a conventional hybrid stacked-WDM/TDM-PON. The scheme provides up to 256-split PON with 80-Gb/s aggregate upstream capacity obtained with RSOA direct modulation at 2.5 Gb/s.
