The network dimensioning for a TDM-PON deployment based on reflec
tive ONUs is presented in order to optimize number of users for efficient exploitation. Due to wavelength reuse, the study is focused on the power budget and DS-ER/US-oSRR critical relation. These and other parameters are analyzed theoretical and experimentally and optimal design values are presented. A TDM-PON for 32 users/20km is possible at BER = 5E-4 reference level.
