Polarization Dependence of Linear In-Band Crosstalk in Multipoint-to-Point Networks


This letter studies the influence of random polarization on in-band crosstalk caused by residual output power in high split long reach wavelength/time-division-multiplexing passive optical networks. Based on a statistical description of polarization, statistics of network performance are deduced, and it is shown that a significant reduction in requirements… (More)
