This Recommendation describes a method of transmitting multi-channel television signals over an optical access network that utilizes frequency modulation (FM) conversion. In this FM transmission system, multi-channel frequency-division multiplexing (FDM) television signals are simultaneously converted into one single wideband FM signal. This FM signal is then transmitted through the optical access network by using the intensity modulation technique. The video-optical network terminal (V-ONT) at the customer premises converts the received single FM signal into the original multi-channel FDM video signals, i.e., coaxial cable television (CATV) signals. The interface for this FM transmission system is the same as that of the amplitude modulation sub-carrier multiplexing (AM-SCM) system. Therefore, the FM transmission system can replace the AM-SCM system. The FM transmission system is required to have an FM converter, i.e., frequency modulator and frequency demodulator, in addition to the AM-SCM transmission system's equipment. However, it has a better efficiency than the AM-SCM transmission system against the noise deterioration caused by optical transmission/splitter loss and optical reflections.

In the SCM technique, the main carrier is the optical frequency signal carrier; the sub-carriers transfer the electrically multiplexed FDM video signals in the optical sideband.

This system can be added to the ITU-T G.983.1 series B-PON system by using ITU-T G.983.3 wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) technology, to the ITU-T G.984 series G-PON system and ITU-T G.987 series XG-PON system by using ITU-T G.984.5 WDM technology, and to the IEEE 802.3ah/802.3av EPON systems. This integration would allow the system to offer broadcast services and also data and voice communication services over the same optical access network. By using the bidirectional data PON system, upstream signals, e.g., control functionality and upstream data indicating the user's requirements, can be transmitted as well.
