Requirements for burst-mode equalisation in a 25Gb/s PAM4 system for passive optical network upstream traffic are analysed for different linear equaliser solutions, with transmission over 40km of fibre. The impact of chromatic dispersion, transmitter bandwidth restriction and non-linearities is considered.
