This paper presents a point-to-multipoint (P2MP) in-home optical network infrastructure based on 1-mm core diameter plastic optical fiber (POF). By employing passive POF splitters, converged broadband wired and wireless service transmission over a P2MP POF infrastructure is demonstrated. A gross 2.2 Gb/s fractional discrete multitone (DMT) and a 528-MHz ultra wideband (UWB) wireless signal distribution simultaneously to four end-users are successfully achieved with BER <; 10-3 and EVM <; 15.5% , respectively. Up to 50 m transmission distance is achieved using off-the-shelf optical components. This feasibility study on all-optical P2MP infrastructures presents a promising low-cost solution for high-speed in-home broadband communication.
