Performance evaluation of fault-branch detection in TDM passive optical networks by spectral analysis of interferometric signals

Abstract

A new fault-branch detection scheme is proposed to troubleshoot the breaks of any distribution fibers in a time-division multiplexing (TDM) passive optical network. We employ a continuous optical frequency sweeper at the optical line terminal (OLT) and an interferometric (IF) device at each optical network unit (ONU). By analyzing the spectrum of the… (More)
