The Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Network (GE-PON) Fiber To The Home (FTTH) system is expected to be the standard optical communication access system in the next generation. In Japan, full-scale introduction of FTTH services will begin in 2005. We have developed bi-directional transceiver modules for an optical network unit (ONU) and optical line terminal (OLT) that are compliant with the IEEE802.3ah standard for GE-PON using optical sub-assembly (OSA) which has a unique passive alignment structure.
