ABSTRACT In this paper, we propose and experimentally investigate a simple self-injection Fabry-Perot laser scheme on each optical network unit (ONU) for 10 Gbps TDM passive optical networks (PONs). Based on the proposed four wavelength-multiplexed 2.5 Gbps lasers, the 10 Gbps uplink traffic can be achieved at a cost-effective way. The network architecture and performance have also been analyzed and discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A 10 Gbit/s OFDM upstream transmission has been investigated by using a Fabry-Pe rot laser diode (FP-LD) based ONU with seeding-light in a colourless WDM-PON. Also demonstrated is the relationship of CW injection power and SNR of each OFDM subcarrier for a modelocked FP-LD. Moreover, when a 16-QAM OFDM modulation is applied in a modelocked FP-LD, -15.7 dBm received sensitivity at the BER of 3.8 × 10-3 can be obtained after 20 km fibre transmission.

    ABSTRACT: A secure and scalable wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) ring-based access network is proposed and demonstrated using proof-of-concept experiments. In the remote node (RN), wavelength hopping for specific optical networking unit (ONU) is deployed by using silicon micro-ring resonators (SMR). Using silicon-based devices could be cost-effective for the cost-sensitive access network. Hence the optical physical layer security is introduced. The issues of denial of service (DOS) attacks, eavesdropping and masquerading can be made more difficult in the proposed WDM ring-based access network. Besides, the SMRs with different dropped wavelengths can be cascaded, such that the signals pass through the preceding SMRs can be dropped by a succeeding SMR. This can increase the scalability of the RN for supporting more ONUs for future upgrade. Here, error-free 10 Gb/s downlink and 1.25 Gb/s uplink transmission are demonstrated to show the feasibility of the proposed network.

    ABSTRACT: A migration scheme from time-division-multiplex passive optical network (TDM-PON) to wavelength-division-multiplex PON (WDM-PON) using differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) for the downstream signal and wavelength-shifted amplitude-shift keying (WS-ASK) for the upstream signal is demonstrated. The migration scheme does not change the existing fiber infrastructure. An optical filter is preinstalled at the optical networking unit (ONU) to select the desirable downstream wavelength for the WDM-PON and simultaneously demodulate the downstream DPSK signal. Signal remodulation is used to generate the upstream signal by reusing the downstream wavelength. In the ONU, by wavelength shifting the upstream optical spectrum with respect to the downstream optical spectrum, the Rayleigh backscattering (RB) interference beat noise affecting the upstream signal can be significantly mitigated. The optimum bandwidth for the downstream DPSK demodulation is analyzed. The downstream and upstream transmission performances at different split ratios are also discussed.
