After ‘fiber to the home’, fiber has reached in the room. To make such fiber based indoor networks cost and energy efficient, reflective modulators (like R-SOA and REAM) are core components which are also wavelength agile. They remove the need of laser sources at antenna access points for upstream signal. The baseband version of OFDM (i.e. DMT) along with bit-and power-loading algorithm can overcome the bandwidth limitation of R-SOA. In this paper, we have shown experimental results of multi-gb/s communication for upstream signal in indoor optical networks. DMT modulation scheme has been used to obtain throughput of 9 Gb/s with a 750MHz RSOA.
