32dB of Optical Budget with DSP-free real time experimentation up to 50Gbit/s NRZ using O-band DFB-EAM and SOA-PIN for Higher Speed PONs

We achieve 32.3dB of optical budget and 45km reach transmission in real time with an O-band EAM-DFB and SOA-PIN for 50Gbit/s NRZ standards. A DSP-free transmission was demonstrated with a semi-cooled transmitter.
