DESIGN & SIMULATION OF INTEGRATED SEMICONDUCTOR OPTICAL AMPLIFIER MODULATOR AND ITS USE IN WAVELENGTH DIVISION MULTIPLEXING PASSIVE OPTICAL ACCESS NETWORKS

by INAGANTI, MURALI

Abstract (Summary)
Optical Access Networks are expected to become the dominant method for providing the broadband bandwidth in the last mile. DWDM though a standard for long haul transmission is not an automatic choice in the cost sensitive & star type distribution access networks. This severely limits the bandwidth capacities that can be achieved in the last mile to serve the next generation of services. In this work we study an integrated semiconductor optical amplifier modulator. We then use this SOAM to design a loopback based passive optical network. The optical network is evaluated & simulated to demonstrate the feasibility of DWDM in access networks based on the ITU-T guidelines for optical access networks.
