Novel multi-band DFT-spread OFDM-PON systems based on intensity modulation and direct detection for cloud computing
Passive optical network (PON) has become a preferable access technique for cloud computing due to its elastic bandwidth capacity and transmission stability. In particular, the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing PON based on intensity modulation and direct detection (IM/DD OFDM-PON) has gained extensive attention since it is a cost- and spectral-efficient system, while for the traditional IM/DD OFDM-PON, the use of OFDM could lead to the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR), and it is impossible to satisfy the different QoS degrees required by ONUs under a cloud environment. Thus in this paper, we design a novel multi-band discrete Fourier transform (DFT)-spread IM/DD OFDM-PON. The DFT-spread is utilized to reduce the PAPR; meanwhile, a multi-band power allocation and bit loading are achieved to satisfy the different degrees of QoS requirement owned by ONUs. The simulation results show that our system has the better performance of PAPR reduction compared with the traditional IM/DD OFDM-PON; meanwhile, the different QoS degrees of all ONUs are guaranteed.
