We propose a hybrid wavelength-division-multi-plexing/time-division-multiplexing architecture using reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers (RSOAs) for next-generation access solutions. We demonstrate that the use of a high gain and high output power RSOA as remote modulator enables a 36-dB optical budget for colorless operation at 2.5 Gb/s over 45-km single-mode fiber. This RSOA-based configuration provides a reasonable cost per user for this hybrid system and can be easily upgraded.
