Project: Techniques Of Modulation And Remodulation for PON

Acronym: TOMAR-PON
Main Objective:
This project targets the performance enhancement of passive optical network (PON). The two key performances that this project aims at improving are the capacity and reach of PONs. Thus, the extended reach wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) PON with increased bit rate up to the Ethernet rates of 100Gb/s and with the bidirectional transmission will be investigated. The project intends to improve the two crucial elements of PONs, the central office and the optical network unit (ONU), by means of investigating the optimum modulation and remodulation techniques for these systems, since they constitute pillars of such a cost-sensitive segment.
