Efficient OEO-Based Remote Terminal Providing a Higher Power Budget of an Asymmetric 10/1G-EPON

This paper proposes the design of an efficient Optical-Electrical-Optical (OEO)-based Remote Terminal (RT) that can provide the higher power budget required for a long-reach transmission in an asymmetric 10 Gbit/s Ethernet Passive Optical Network (10/1G-EPON). The current 10/1GEPON specification supports a maximum physical distance of only 20km in a 32-way split due to a power budget limitation. However, many service providers prefer a transmission reach of over 40km in a 64-way split for an efficient access network design.
