An integrating fiber-to-the-home and plastic optical fiber (POF) in-door routing CATV transport system is proposed and demonstrated with good quality of service. In this system, a 1550 nm optical signal is directly transmitted along with a span of single-mode fiber (SMF) plus POF without wavelength converting or any bridge circuit. The feasibility of our proposed system is observed and accompanied with good carrier-to-noise ratio, composite second-order, and composite triple beat performances under various SMF and POF lengths. To be the first one, to the best of our knowledge, of successfully transporting CATV signals in such integrated access and in-door LAN, this system reveals prominence in simplicity and cost-effective to provide all-optical CATV service all the way to consumer in-door devices.
