Abstract

A novel architecture with point-to-multipoint direct communication (P2MPDC) between any two optical network units (ONUs) for data center is proposed in the paper. By designing transceiver module (TM) ingeniously, the architecture is finished to realize P2MPDC between ONUs in wavelength division multiplexing passive optical networks (WDM-PONs). By constructing wavelength routing module (WRM), backup fiber can be saved to reduce the capital expenditures (CapEx) of network. By utilizing interconnected optical fibers between ONUs, the network has achieved three-level protections (feeder optical fiber protection, distributed optical fiber protection and interconnected optical fiber protection). Finally, by the simulation and analysis, the effectiveness of the proposed architecture is demonstrated.
