In this paper, we present a performance evaluation of three codes; enhanced double weight (EDW), random diagonal (RD) and zero cross correlation (ZCC) for 10 Gb/s × 4 user, 20 km standard SMF transmission link for OCDMA PON. These SAC codes have ideal in-phase cross-correlation properties to reduce the MAI effects in OCDMA. The performance has been characterized through received optical power (ROP) sensitivity and dispersion tolerance assessments. The numerical results show that the ZCC code… CONTINUE READING
