We propose the network on demand concept to yield the optical access network system that well handles the diversity in user demands and support technologies such as module and devices configuration. In this proposal, the network accommodation equipment, such as OLT needed for each service, is installed ‘virtually' using WDM, and the physical rate can adapt to the user-demanded service rate by using the WDM parallel transmission technique. It well handles the diversity in user demands/services and lowers system power consumption.
