A detailed study on the effectiveness of three proposed optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OOFDM) adaptive loading algorithms (ALAs) is conducted, addressing, for the first time, a number of crucial issues related to OOFDM directly modulated laser-based intensity-modulated and direct-detected passive optical networks (PONs). The ALAs(More)
Detailed investigations of the effectiveness of three widely adopted optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OOFDM) adaptive loading algorithms, including power loading (PL), bit loading (BL), and bit-and-power loading (BPL), are undertaken, over < 100km single-mode fibre (SMF) system without incorporating inline optical amplification and(More)
The peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) and optical beat interference (OBI) effects are examined thoroughly in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing access (OFDMA)-passive optical networks (PONs) at a signal bit rate up to $$\sim 20\,\mathrm{{Gb}}/{\hbox {s}}$$ ∼ 20 Gb / s per channel using cost-effective intensity-modulation and direct-detection(More)
The Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) and Optical Beat Interference (OBI) is examined thoroughly in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing Access (OFDMA)-Passive Optical Networks (PONs). Four techniques for mitigating the PAPR/OBI problem are evaluated, namely the bit-loading algorithm and clipping for the PAPR, and the power-loading and thermal(More)
A quantitative comparison of up to 40 Gb/s low-cost orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing access (OFDMA)-passive optical networks (PON) implementations for both upstream (US) and downstream (DS) directions is evaluated based on different modulation and detection techniques.
