Performance evaluation of single carrier 40-Gbit/s downstream for long-reach passive optical networks

This paper presents a new long reach PON (LR-PON) scenario operating at a single carrier of 40-Gbit/s for downstream, as an upgrade option of the LR-PON evolutionary strategy. An electrical 3-level duobinary modulation format was proposed for the 40-Gbit/s downstream transmission. In this paper the required optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR) and optical… CONTINUE READING
