Coherent PONs for next generation access: OIDMA versus OCDMA


Coherent optical interleave-division multiple-access (OIDMA) has been recently proposed for next generation passive optical network (NG-PON) systems. In this paper we present a performance evaluation and comparison of coherent OIDMA and coherent optical code-division multiple-access (OCDMA) PONs in terms of ONU launch power, PON reach, bit error rate (BER… (More)
