Abstract

Nyquist shaping UDWDM-PON combined with digital coherent optical systems has been recently proposed as a promising technology for future optical access networks. In this paper, we report real-time transmitter and receiver for a future coherent PON with high spectral efficiency and low-cost DSP implementation. Using field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based 8-bit DSP, we experimentally demonstrate a high performance system based on 16 × 2.5 Gb/s QPSK signals in terms of receiver sensitivity and fiber transmission. An optimal transmitted power of –7 dBm per channel is achieved for 50-km standard single-mode fiber in a 2.5-GHz grid. The experimental results show the feasibility of coherent PON scenarios based on DSP supported by FPGAs.
