Due to the requirement of broad bandwidth for next-generation access networks, present passive optical networks (PONs) will be upgraded to 40 Gb/s or higher data rate PONs. Hence, we propose and experimentally demonstrate a simple and efficient scheme to achieve a symmetric 40-Gb/s long-reach (LR) time-division-multiplexed PON by using four wavelength-division-multiplexed 10-Gb/s external on-off keying format channels to serve as the optical transmitter for downstream and upstream traffic simultaneously. Moreover, the system performance of LR transmission and split ratio have also been analyzed and discussed without dispersion compensation.
