A passive optical network is one of the various FTTH implementations that have become a good solution for access networks because of point to multipoint architecture. Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) and Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) standards are based on the Time Division Multiplexing (TDM-PON) which has its limitation. Therefore mixing the TDM-PON with WDM-PON capabilities can overcome these problems. Furthermore, other wavelength division multiplex hybrid schemes based on added subcarrier multiple access or code division multiple access from today's point of view do not seem to offer advantage over the hybrid WDM-TDM PON.
