    Upgrading the capacity of backbone optical networks while delivering contents to the end-users with a reduced cost per bit is a day-by-day challenge of network operators. In this paper, we first discuss several mid-term ...
  • Simple intradyne PSK system for UDWDM-PON 

    Prat Gomà, Josep Joan; Polo Querol, Víctor; Zakynthinos, P.; Cano Valadéz, Iván Nicolás; Tabares, J.; Fàbrega Sánchez, Josep Maria; Klonidis, Dimitrios; Tomkos, Ioannis (2012-12-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    A homodyne coherent receiver for ultra-dense WDM-PON with off the shelf components is presented. It consists of a conventional DFB, phase switched clock signal, an optical coupler instead of a 90º hybrid, balanced ...
  • Technologies for cost-effective udWDM-PONs 

    Prat Gomà, Josep Joan; Cano Valadez, Iván Nicolás; Presi, Marco; Tomkos, Ioannis; Klonidis, Dimitrios; Vall-llosera, Gema; Brenot, Romain; Pous, R.; Papastergiou, george; Rafel, Albert; Ciaramella, Ernesto (2016-01-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    New technologies for ultradense WDM-PON (udWDM-PON), enabled by coherent techniques and low-cost devices, are developed for an efficient utilization of the optical spectrum, revealing that the “Wavelength-to-the-User” ...
