Abstract

We have numerically evaluated the next generation passive optical network stage-2 (NG-PON2) architecture based on heterogeneous space division multiplexing (SDM) and wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM). Error free transmission (BER of 10-9) is obtained for all the downstream (DS) and upstream (US) data tributaries, each carrying 40 Gbit/s data, over 20-km of 19-core multi-core fiber (MCF) and 6-spatial-mode few-mode fiber (FMF) without using multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) digital signal processing (DSP), respectively.
