Power budget dimensioning of semiconductor optical amplifier based SuperPON architectures originating from the EC ACTS project PLANET is described. The upstream power budget is critical for SuperPONs. Under worst case conditions it is found that a 5 SOA cascade in the upstream is cable of achieving the full PLANET target system dimensions (2048 way split and 100 km range). Longer feeders are also found to be possible, with the use of further feeder amplification stages, which is useful for the situation when the SuperPON is to be deployed in a ring trenching structure.
