Paper Abstract

In this paper we review our recent works on low cost lasers and remote modulators for Optical Network Unit in access network. Our work is carried out in the context of an FTTH PON migration scenario towards 10Gbit/s base rate as well as towards more capacity and flexibility using WDM technology. All components are based on the attractive thermal, gain and absorption properties of AlGaInAs/InP material system. As a first step to the speed increase we propose a new uncooled 10Gb/s laser based on a self thermal compensation principle. As a next step, new WDM PON architectures will require wavelength agnostic component for ONU. For this purpose, we demonstrate new colorless concepts on 10Gb/s remote amplified electro-absorption modulators. We show low-cost FTTH components may also be attractive for emerging access-metro WDM technology introducing colorless principle in reconfigurable add and drop multiplexers
