Compatibility between coherent reflective burst-mode PON and TWDM-PON physical layers.

Abstract

We discuss the compatibility between reflective PON architectures and the recently defined ITU-T G.989.1 TWDM-PON. Focusing on the upstream, we experimentally demonstrate that, by using burst-mode coherent detection at OLT, reflective PON can achieve the specification target set for TWDM-PON, without requiring precise wavelength accuracy at ONU. Compared to… (More)
