COCONUT project demonstrated an innovative DWDM Passive Optical Network implementing the full Î»-to-the-user concept in a filterless distribution fiber network. We make use of an innovative class of coherent transceivers that exploit the advantages of coherent detection in terms of sensitivity and channel selectivity in a cost efficient manner. The different transceivers developed target different use case scenarios, showing perfect compatibility with legacy infrastructures installed. In this paper, we report the successful trial of the proposed system in a testbed where 4 different coherent transceivers (plus one legacy E-PON system) ran simultaneously, operating over 14 DWDM channels, in a dark-fiber network in the city of Pisa, delivering real-time and/or test traffic. The testbed demonstrated filterless operations, multi-rate transmission (from 1.25 to 10 Gb/s/Î»), high ODN loss (18 - 40 dB) as well as a bi-directional channel monitoring system.
