We experimentally demonstrate the use of millimeter-wave signal generation by optical carrier suppression (OCS) method using single-drive Mach-Zehnder modulator as a light sources seed for 20 Gb/s WDM-OFDM-PON in 20-km single fiber loopback transmission based on cost-effective RSOA modulation. Practical discrete rate adaptive bit loading algorithm was employed in this colorless ONU system to maximize the achievable bit rate for an average bit error rate (BER) below 2 × 10-3.
