In this work we demonstrate a proof of concept fully loaded bi-directional ultra-high capacity coherent PON (2x1008x8.3 Gb/s). This was achieved using partial spectrum overlap, Nyquist shaping, digital frequency shifting, self-homodyne detection and pilot tone remodulation. Upstream burst mode operation is also demonstrated.
