There is growing demand for higher bit rates in the access domain due to the emergence of bandwidthhungry applications such as video-on-Demand and file sharing. Gigabit-capable passive optical network (GPON) is the most important PON. In a hybrid wave division multiplexing/time division multiplexing (WDM/TDM passive optical network (PON), Quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is proposed as a way to achieve the necessary high bit rates. In this paper, 2.5-Gb/s hybrid WDM/TDM downstream link is

The result shows a good performance with a distance of 25 km for single mode fiber which serves up to 32 users. The analysis was made based on the performance of eye and constellation diagrams.
