In this paper we present an in-home optical network infrastructure based on 1-mm core diameter plastic optical fibre. Both bus and star topologies based point-to-multipoint (P2MP) infrastructures to deliver ultra wideband (UWB) radio signals are presented. The system complexity and cost are compared and discussed considering real application environments. A detailed experimental study on the performance of the two infrastructures using ultra-wide band signal delivery is carried out, indicating the feasibility of plastic optical fibre solutions for low-cost in-home optical networks.
