Wavelength Division Multiplexed Passive Optical etwork (WDM-PO) is generally an extreme efficient futureproof optical transport technology used in Access and Metro transport networks. It enables highly efficient use of the outside fiber plant by providing point-to-point optical connectivity to multiple remote locations through a single feeder fiber. The Passive Optical etwork (PO) is optical fiber based network architecture, which can provide much higher bandwidth in the access network compared to traditional copper-based network. Incorporating Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) in Passive Optical etwork (PO) allow one to support much higher bandwidth compared to the standard PO. In designing the WDM-PO system, few parameters such as bit rate, power transmit, and fiber length should be considered because it will affect the system performance. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to identify the best length and suitable bit rate in WDM-PO architecture for star architecture with 64 end users. This project is focusing on one design parameter against two performance parameters; distance vs. bit error rate (BER) and distance vs. power received at various bit rates. The simulation results are produced using Optisystem 6.0. From the experimental results, the performance of WDM-PO can be affected by various parameters.
