dc.description.abstract The performance of forward error correction (FEC) based on Reed-Solomon coding is analyzed experimentally for a burst-mode upstream channel within a passive optical network (PON) testbed. During this analysis, the upstream FEC performance is impaired by inducing correlated and localized errors within the burst through the injection of optical transients. These transients emulate the optical signal variation associated with the add-and-drop events of wavelength channels within a long-reach optical link based on a chain of erbium doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs). The robustness of the FEC has been analyzed by measuring the post-FEC bit error rate (BER) as a function of the amplitude of the emulated transients and their delay with respect to the transmitted bursts. A margin of approximately 4dB is demonstrated for the transient amplitude before the FEC degradation. Furthermore, while the post-FEC BER is strongly degraded by the emulated transients, the preFEC BER stays below the FEC threshold, demonstrating the importance of measuring the post-FEC BER in order to correctly characterize the FEC performance in PON upstream channels affected by optical transients. en
