Techniques for multiple access over passive optical access networks, between the central office (CO)and the subscriber premises, have been the subject of considerable recent interest. Among the distinct proposals, time-division multiple access (TDMA)1 and wavelength-division multiple access (WDMA)2 have attracted much attention and have been demonstrated experimentally.
