A low-cost and bandwidth-efficient scheme for delivering video services to customers over a long reach, large split repeater-based optical access network is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Video channels that are on radio-frequency subcarriers are electrically combined with regenerated downstream data at the repeater and delivered to the customers on a single wavelength channel. Experimental results show that error-free transmission can be obtained for all channels with adequate power budget to support a split ratio more than 64. © 2007 IEEE.
