We demonstrate and characterize 800 Gb/s capacity WDM-PON with an ASE injection seeding. Required total seed power at central office to feeder fiber is 16 dBm for 20 km upstream transmission of 80 channels. We investigate the maximum transmission length according to channels. The transmission length is limited to 39.7 km by intra-channel crosstalk induced by Rayleigh back-scattering, provided that the dispersion is compensated. Also, we investigate the allowable differential path length to evaluate the flexibility of the system.
