Rayleigh backscattering minimization in single fiber colorless WDM-PON using intensity remodulation technique
- First Online:
The performance of colorless wavelength-division multiplexed passive optical network (WDM-PON) systems suffers from the transmission impairments mainly due to Rayleigh backscattering (RB). In this paper, we propose and demonstrate a single fiber colorless WDM-PON which enhances the tolerance to RB induced noise. The high extinction ratio in both return-to-zero (RZ)-shaped differential phase shift keying (DPSK) downstream (DS) data signal and intensity-remodulated upstream (US) data signal helps to improve the tolerance to RB induced noise. Simulation results show that downstream and upstream signals can achieve error-free performance at 10 Gbit/s with negligible penalty and improve the tolerance to RB induced noise over 25 km standard single-mode fiber.
