We present the first experimental demonstration of a bidirectional cascaded arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) access network combining one NxN AWG in the central office with multiple 1xN AWG's at the distribution points, such as to individually address N(2) users with only N wavelengths. Downstream and upstream data share the same optical path. BER curves(More)
We describe an upgrade scenario from current passive optical networks (PON) to wavelength routed fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks. The theoretical and experimental study of a bidirectional access network topology based on cascaded arrayed waveguide gratings (AWG) is presented. By combining a 16times16 AWG in the exchange point and multiple 1times16 AWGs in(More)
