Even if Passive Optical Networks (PONs) have proven to be more energy-efficient that other access solutions, energy consumption minimization is becoming an important research target also in PON. In particular, to sustain the increased bandwidth demand of emerging applications in the access section of the network, new hybrid PON solutions employing WDM/TDM are being investigated. Compared with classics PON, the architecture of WDM/TDM-PONs requires more transceivers/receivers, hence they are expe...
