The "mode" means a wavelength generated by a laser
cavity. Mode hopping is the phenomenon of a dominant mode's shift in random
pattern, while mode competition is the continual intensity fluctuations
among several modes with the total intensity remaining
The "triple play" terminology seems to have
multiple usage and differs slightly. In general, a service provider (SP) may
not care about any special technology; as long as the SP can provide
"video+voice+data" services in any way, the SP can call it triple-play
service . But, a software engineering viewpoint uses this terminology as the
integration of services using the Internet protocol (IP). For clarity, we
emphasize wavelength-overlaid "triple-play" PON service.

There are several reasons for using the CWDM
filter. For the same reasons, this CWDM filter may be used at an EPON ONU,
as follows: (i) This CWDM filter prevents the downstream signal from
entering the LD at the ONU; (ii) the insertion loss of the filter is far
less (~0.5 dB) compared to a 2×1 splitter (~3.5 dB); (iii)This filter
prevents the potential upstream signal from entering the PD at the
