This paper shows optical power extension techniques for 10 Gbit/s per A. channel for WDM-PON DPSK systems. The scheme is based on semiconductor optical amplifiers. We present 56.5 dB total optical power budget enhancement using our configuration for the downstream scenario. The setup is cost effective in terms of optical components. Only one DLI (Delay Line Interferometer) is used to convert DPSK signals to OOK. We present experimentally as well as through simulations that our scheme has better performance than a single SOA as a power budget extender.
