Paper Abstract

A colorless wavelength division multiplexed-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing-passive optical network (WDM-OFDM-PON) is presented, which is capable of supporting symmetric 10 Gbps downlink direct detection (DD) OFDM unicast signal, broadcast signal, and uplink on–off keying (OOK) signal up to 60 km that includes both single mode and dispersion compensation fiber. At each optical network unit (ONU), DD has been used to receive downlink unicast and broadcast OFDM data. A delay interferometer (DI) has been used at a central office to achieve 10 Gbps uplink signal transmission over 60 km distance utilizing a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (bandwidth=1.5  GHz) at the ONU because DI works as a vestigial sideband filter and an optical equalizer. Broadcast channel does not affect the system performance because it generates a limited interference of the order of 0.1 to 0.28 dB to downlink and uplink channels, and this interference is distributed to every ONU. For bit error rate of 109, the receiver sensitivity of −24, −23.1, and −20.14  dBm is achieved by simulating downlink OFDM unicast channels, OFDM broadcast channel, and uplink OOK unicast channels, respectively, for a symmetric data rate of 10 Gbps over 60 km.
