A loop-back WDM-PON based on a RSOA has lots of merits, however one-level of the upstream signal has downstream information under OOK modulation. These effects make difficult to define decision threshold and estimate BER. In order to solve this, we propose a mathematical model of remodulated OOK signal and experimentally demonstrate BER performance with the near optimum decision threshold achieved by the proposed model.
