A broadcast/multicast transmission method in a WDM-PON system using a low-cost Fabry-Pérot laser diode with broadband ASE injection is proposed and experimentally demonstrated in this paper. Because of its low front-facet reflectivity (∼0.1%), the F-P LD exhibits a broadband lasing spectrum and reduced mode-partition noise. To demonstrate its performance, the bit error rate and packet loss rate were measured. The proposed optical source provides a cost-effective WDM-PON architecture for a broadcast/multicast service accommodating more than 32×622MBps. For the transmission of MPEG-2 TS packets, zero packet loss could be obtained at an optical power of -32dBm.
