Abstract
Optical fiber distribution systems with intensity-modulation/ direct-detection and erbium-doped fiber amplifiers are designed for cable television (CATV) applications. Two types of system configurations are considered, i.e., the passive power splitter with optically preamplified receivers (PPS-OPR) scheme and the hybrid passive-and-active power splitter (HPAPS) scheme. The receiver sensitivity is calculated for various system parameters. We compare both schemes through the number of CATV subscribers and show that the HPAPS scheme is superior to the PPS-OPR scheme for large-scale CATV distribution applications.
