Impairment Analysis of WDM-PON Based on Low-Cost Tunable Lasers


WDM-PON is considered for next-generation broadband backhaul and radio access networking. Among different implementation choices, we propose to utilize low-cost tunable lasers at the remote sites, together with a centralized wavelength locker. Practical implementations require a transparently added downstream signaling channel and upstream per-channel pilot… (More)
