In the framework of the EU-funded research project “FABULOUS,” we experimentally demonstrate an innovative FDMA-PON architecture whose upstream transmission is based on a reflective Mach-Zehnder modulator. By a careful optimization of electrical spectrum allocation, semiconductor optical amplifier biasing point, and modulation index, we upgrade previous… CONTINUE READING
