The simulation models for a typical PON layout are developed and three major PON technologies are considered. The models support the analysis of various important characteristic parameters, namely: 1) link budget for acceptable losses from splices, attenuation and splitters, 2) link performance characterization based on data (BER, SNR) or video signal quality, and 3) linear and nonlinear fiber effects such as dispersion, PMD, self- and crossmodulation, FWM, etc. Analysis outcomes may be used to optimize the performance of the applied system design including fiber maximum length and type, the need to change some of the optical components (e.g. couplers, splitters, etc.) and digital links bit rate (e.g. 1.2 Gb/s or 2.4 Gb/s) according to the required BER. The simulation models developed enable us with these detailed analyses of PON technologies without the need to build prototypes.
