Abstract

We report a 2:1 rate asymmetric high serial rate time division multiplexing passive optical network (TDM-PON) with single carrier 25 Gb/s upstream and 50 Gb/s downstream. In the upstream, we present a first 25 Gb/s three-level modulated burst-mode receiver employing a ${1}/{4}$ -rate linear burst-mode avalanch photodiode transimpedance amplifier and a custom decoder IC. We successfully demonstrated burst-mode sensitivity of -20.4 dBm with 18 dB dynamic burst-to-burst for 25 Gb/s upstream links. In another direction, a downstream in upper O-band is proposed and demonstrated with three-level duo-binary modulation at 50 Gb/s in real time. The upstream and downstream transmission experiments show that the proposed asymmetric 50 G/25 G high serial rate TDM-PON can support $\ge$ 32 users while covering more than 20 km reach.
