We have proposed and experimentally demonstrated a novel architecture for orthogonal frequency-division- multiplexing (OFDM) wavelength-division-multiplexing passive optical network with centralized lightwave. In this architecture, 16 quadrature amplitude modulation intensity-modulated OFDM signals at 10 Gb/s are utilized for downstream transmission. A wavelength-reuse scheme is employed to carry the upstream data to reduce the cost at optical network unit. By using one intensity modulator, the downstream signal is remodulated for upstream on-off keying (OOK) data at 2.5 Gb/s based on its return-to-zero shape waveform. We have also studied the fading effect caused by double-sideband (DSB) downstream signals. Measurement results show that 2.5-dB power penalty is caused by the fading effect. The fading effect can be removed when the DSB OFDM downstream signals are converted to single sideband (SSB) after vestigial filtering. The power penalty is negligible for both SSB OFDM downstream and the remodulated OOK upstream signals after over 25-km standard single-mode-fiber transmission. Index
