This paper presents the high-level COCONUT architecture of an optical access network based on coherent technology, supporting ultra-dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). The COCONUT network should allow for seamless evolution from present PON architectures, but also support new emerging applications such as mobile back-haul and front-haul. Coherent(More)
A visible light communication system is experimentally demonstrated by employing RGB LEDs directly modulated with DMT signal. Data rate of 780 Mbit/s is achieved for the first time at 2.5 m, common indoor ceiling-desk distance. 1. Introduction LED-based lighting will be the future lighting technology due to low cost, long life time, low power consumption(More)
—We report about a Line of Sight Optical Wireless Communication (LoS OWC) system aided by a simplified Visible Light localization algorithm for tracking purposes. We show experimentally that by combining the LoS OWC system with the localization algorithm it is possible to provide a gross data-rate exceeding 300 Mb/s over a 90° illumination angle by using a(More)
We propose a novel line coding combination (Inverse RZ coding in downlink and RZ in uplink) that extends the reach of WDM Passive Optical Networks based on Reflective SOAs with no in-line amplification. We achieved full downstream remodulation even when feeding the reflective SOA with power levels as low as -35 dBm, thus increasing the system power budget.(More)
In this paper we present and critically discuss different wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network (WDM-PON) architectures compatible with pre-existing gigabit PON (GPON) infrastructures. The concurrent use of the trunk fiber permits a hitless evolution from an existing time division multiplexing optical access network to a point-to-point(More)
