The simultaneous baseband and broadcasting signal transmission based on wavelength division multiplexing-passive optical network access network are proposed and their experimental verifications are shown. Amplified spontaneous emitting source modulated by broadcasting signal in radio frequency band at reflective semiconductor optical amplifier is provided as seed source for wired signal modulation. The filtered amplified spontaneous emitting source is aligned to each channel and modulated by the downlink baseband signal at RSOA. Simultaneous downstream transmission of baseband and broadcasting signals over 23-km SMF is experimentally verified. Mutual interference between broadcasting and baseband signals, nonlinearity by two tone analysis, and performance variation on temperature are investigated.
