The next generation passive optical networks have the option to employ the wavelength domain to provide bandwidth and flexibility to the users. Each user will be addressed with a specific wavelength from the central office. These specific wavelength transceivers will give a serious inventory management problem to the PON operators. A possible solution is to create transceivers consisting of two parts: colorless and colorful. The colorless part which is wavelength-independent in a small form-factor pluggable is connected externally to a wavelength-selective module. Full characterization of such devices is presented here in order to evaluate their suitability for WDM-PON.
