We demonstrate an extended reach 60 km coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM)-time division multiple access (TDMA) passive optical network (PON) with 40 Gb/s capacity for both down and upstream directions. The system leverages existing 10 Gb/s TDMA PON technologies and incorporates various subsystems such as volume manufacturable optical transmitters, a prototype 10 Gb/s burst-mode receiver, hybrid semiconductor optical amplifier-Raman amplifiers, and a cyclic CWDM multiplexer. We confirm that this 32-user system has sufficient power margin to accommodate 128 users.
