Abstract

A distributed access scheme using optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs) for long reach hybrid wavelength division multiplexing and time division multiplexing passive optical networks (WDM-TDM PONs) is proposed and demonstrated. Colorless operations are implemented by using commercially available reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers (RSOAs) at both the center office (CO) and the customer side. Four 1.25-Gb/s channels are successfully transmitted over 80-km single-mode fiber with four OADMs. The dynamic input power range of the RSOA is also investigated. Compared with traditional access schemes, the proposed scheme could cover the area along the feed fiber with no blind zone. The experimental results show that it could be an ideal solution for the next generation access networks.
