Optical communication systems have begun to be developed by many researchers after finding that the use of copper cable has many disadvantages. These disadvantages include low bit rate, very limited bandwidth and high possibility of influence of magnetic field. The use of fiber optic instead copper cable can solve these problems. Fiber optic can carry data at high speed with large bandwidth. The data carried by light thus the data destruction caused by the influence of magnetic fields can be avoided. FTTH-PON is an optical communication system that is used to carry communications signals over fiber optic cables from Optical Line Terminal (OLT) in Central Office (CO) to all customers.
