A dynamic wavelength-division-multiplexing/time-division-multiplexing hybrid access network with energy and data synchronized transmission is proposed to support flexible resource allocation. Dynamic scheduling of wavelength with different split ratio nodes is realized by the control model at the optical distribution network (ODN). All-optical amplification of the optical data signal and energy supply are also incorporated in the ODN. A proof-of-concept experiment is implemented to verify the feasibility of the proposal.
