We demonstrate a symmetric-rate, 8 x 10-Gb/s, bi-directional TWDM-PON with 42-km reach, and 1:256 split. Distributed Raman amplification provides gain for the upstream channels (allowing low-cost low-power transmitters) and powering for an intelligent splitter module that provides supervision for mission-critical services.
