Abstract
With the increasing demand on the access network in the local and residential areas, there is a growing need for more scalable and dynamic optical access network architectures. In this paper, variable optical splitter is utilized in the optical access network as branching device. By changing the number of branches at the variable optical splitter or tuning the optical power distribution between these branches, a more flexible architecture can be realized. This will enable more customers to access the network flexibly and dynamically. It also has the added advantage that it can provide link protection for the network.
