A novel reconfigurable access network architecture which enables the bidirectional transmission of 1.25-2.5 Gbit/s is described in this paper. Optical Network Units (ONUs) are equipped with a Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (RSOA) and Remote Nodes (RNs) are based on microring resonators. We also propose ONU upgrade to serve 10 Gbit/s per end-user. Next to the brief description of the architecture and transmission simulations some principle measurement results are presented which show the feasibility of the concept.
