This paper describes the TDMA uplink of the ACTS PLANET project, realizing a high split long range access network using optical amplification. An overview of the network topology and the different building blocks is given. In particular, the differentiating burst mode receiver, the optical repeater units and the amplified splitter controller will be discussed. Bit error measurements were performed to define the system limits of the access network. It is shown that a feeder length of 90 km, in combination with a split factor of 2000 and a drop section length of 10 km are feasible.
