A novel WDM-PON system delivering bidirectional 1.25-Gbps data and broadcasting data is proposed. A subcarrier signal modulates optical carriers of a Fabry-Perot-laser-diode based broadband light source to broadcast to all users. Reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers are used as modulators for the baseband data at both the optical line terminal and the remote optical network unit for a channel. Bit error rate and error vector magnitude were measured to demonstrate the proposed scheme.
