To avoid the fault occurrence of fiber link, a simple self-restored wavelength-division-multiplexing passive optical network (WDM-PON) is presented. In the demonstration, the additional optical components are included in the optical line terminal (OLT), remote node (RN) and optical network unit (ONU) to produce the alternative fiber path for fault protection. Here, 10 Gb/s on-off keying (OOK) downstream and upstream wavelengths are exploited to measure the bit error rate (BER) performances at the back-to-back (B2B) and through 50 to 51 km fiber transmission, respectively. Moreover, all the modulation signals can achieve enough power budget under the forward error correction (FEC) level to meet with the total insertion loss caused by the various fiber links and additional devices.
