We report on the 1O-Gb/s operation of the reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) for the next-generation wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network (WDM PON). The bandwidth of the RSOA used in this experiment is merely 2.2 GHz. Nevertheless, a clear eye opening is obtained at 10 Gb/s by using the electronic equalizer processed offline. We investigate the impacts of the network's operating conditions (such as the injection power to the RSOA and the fiber length) on the performances of these equalizers. The results show that the RSOA-based WDM PON is operable at 10 Gb/s and the maximum reach can be extended to >20 km with the help of the forward error correction codes.
