We propose a compact integration system to simultaneously provide wireline and wireless (baseband and ultra-wide band (UWB)) services to end-users in a WDM-PON. A 1-Gbps UWB signal is optically generated and shares the same wavelength with the baseband signal. Error-free performance was achieved after 23-km single mode fiber (SMF) transmission for both signals and additional 0.4-m wireless transmission for the UWB signal. The low complexity and high spectrum efficiency of this system makes it attractive for deployment of in wireline/wireless converged gigabit optical access networks.
