In this paper, we numerically and experimentally demonstrate a bi-directional Terabit+ Ultra-Dense Wavelength- Division Multiplexing (UDWDM) coherent Passive Optical network (PON) with Nyquist shaped 16-ary Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (16QAM), offering up to 10 Gb/s service capabilities per user / wavelength in a total spectrum of 12.8 nm over 40 km of Standard Single-Mode Fiber (SSMF). The paper firstly demonstrates the capability of Nyquist pulse shaping to mitigate crosstalk arising from back-reflections and nonlinear effects in UDWDM networks with coherent transceivers. The latter part of the work experimentally investigates the bi-directional transmission in terms of receiver sensitivity and nonlinear tolerance under different network transmission capacity conditions, e.g. number of users and bit rate per users.
