We proposed and experimentally demonstrated the reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA)-based wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network (WDM-PON) scheme where not only up/downlink data services but also broadcasting service could be provided using a single optical source. In the proposed scheme, the digital signal and subcarrier… CONTINUE READING
