Paper Abstract

A monitoring technique for multiple power splitter-passive optical networks (PS-PON) is presented. The technique is based on the remote sensing of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) using a tunable OTDR. To monitor the multiple PS-PON, the FBG can be used for a wavelength dependent reflective reference on each branch end of the PS. The FBG helps discern an individual event of the multiple PS-PON for the monitoring in collaborate with information of Rayleigh backscattered power. The multiple PS-PON can be analyzed by the monitoring method at the central office under 10-Gbit/s in-service.
