We propose a bandwidth allocation technique for accommodating a time division duplex mobile base station (TDD-BS) and a secondary system in a TDM-PON. Operating availability is confirmed with essential three types of TDD configuration taken from the seven types described by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardization group. We evaluate the latency of the TDD-BS and the throughput of the secondary system. We report that the TDD-BS signal is forwarded in less than about 50 μs and is unaffected by the secondary system. The throughput of the secondary system is improved compared with that of the conventional technique.
