The thesis investigates a new long-reach passive optical networks (LRPON) architecture based on multi-band coherent optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CO-OFDM). The proposed CO-OFDM based LRPON system is characterized by a novel phase noise compensation mechanism aiming to deal with optical signal dispersion in long-range transmissions. By employing a dispersion compensating fiber (DCF) and local oscillator (LO) laser phase shifter for each end-to-end transmission between OLT and ONU, we will show the phase noise due to dispersion can be effectively mitigated. Simulation of the downlink traffic between one optical line terminal (OLT) and 12 optical network units (ONUs) is performed successfully at different fiber lengths, at the data rate of 10$Gbps$ per ONU. The required BER for the forward error correction (FEC) has been achieved for most ONUs, using a dispersion compensating fiber (DCF) and local oscillator (LO) laser phase shifter to compensate for the chromatic dispersion (CD) and the polarization mode dispersion (PMD), respectively.
