We are developing a novel technology for the next generation optical access network. The proposed archi-tecture provides FTTX high bandwidth which enables to give out 10Gbit/s per end-user. Increasing the subscribers in the future will cause massive congestion in the data transferred along the optical network. Our solution is using the wavelength division multiplexing PON (CWDM-PON) technology to achieve high bandwidth and enormous data transmission at the network access. Physical layer modifications are used in our model to provide satisfactory solution for the bandwidth needs. Thus high data rates can be achieved throughout the network using low cost technologies. Framework estimations are evaluated to prove the intended model success and reliability. Our argument that: this modification will submit a wide bandwidth suitable for the future Internet.
