Paper Abstract

PON (passive optical network) has employed widely in FTTH (fiber to the home) as an attractive technology for "the last mile" in access network, which have been developed in various ways such as broadband-PON (B-PON), Ethernet-PON (E-PON), and wavelength division multiplexed (WDM)-PON. In particular the WDM-PON has been considered as a next-generation solution to follow the time division multiplexing TDM-PONs, and most studies to combine TDM and WDM techniques for near future deployment. In this paper we propose a new hybrid CWDM/TDM-PON architecture which is called nhCT-POM (New Hybrid CWDM/TDM-PON). And a novel idea about wavelengths multiplex/de-multiplex based on point-to-multipoint structure is presented. The following contents are expatiated in this paper: the overall nhCT-PON architecture, the OLT (optical line terminal) design, the RNMux/ Demux (remote node mutiplex/demultiplex) design, ONU/ONT (optical network unit/optical network terminal) design and the coverage of nhCT-PON.
