wavelength division multiplexing PON (WDM-PON)

In addition to the Ethernet-based 10 Gigabit variant 10GEPON (10 Gigabit Ethernet PON), Full Service Access Network (FSAN) is working on another 10 Gigabit PON concept with wavelength division multiplexing: Wavelength Division Multiplexing PON

(WDM-PON). In South Korea and Japan, corresponding WDM-PON pilot projects for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) are being tested.

They are also investigating the extent to which Broadband Passive Optical Network (BPON) and Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) can be transmitted together on one optical fiber.
