A novel time/space/wavelength division multiplexing (TDM/WDM) architecture using the free spectral range (FSR) periodicity of the arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) is presented. A shared tunable laser and a photoreceiver stack featuring dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) and remote modulation are used for transmission and reception. Transmission tests show correct operation at 2.5 Gb/s to a 30-km reach, and network performance calculations using queue modeling demonstrate that a high-bandwidth-demanding application could be deployed on this network.
