2009 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
An optical communications network ( 10) comprising an optical line termination ( 12), and a first optical multiplexer/demultiplexer (MUX/DEMUX) ( 14), comprising N input ports and N output ports. The network (10) further comprises a plurality of wavelength division multiplexed passive optical network (WDM PON) distribution networks (22) coupled to a respective one of the MUX/DEMUX output ports and comprising optical network units (20). Feeder fibres ( 16) are coupled between the optical line termination and a respective one of the MUX/DEMUX input ports. Interconnection fibres ( 18) are coupled between respective pairs of the optical network units.
