An innovative architectural platform demonstrating transparent transmission of frequency division multiplexed (FDM) WiMAX channels over multi-wavelength splitter-PONs enriched by overlapping cell functionalities has been investigated to potentially double the spectral efficiency and provide resilience. The obtained results has demonstrated EVMs below -30 dB at ONU/BS WiMAX remote antenna inputs and 4 dB downstream power penalty for 10-6 BERs over line-of-sight overlapping micro-cells circumference without any error coding. In addition, to accommodate various delay requirements a dynamic multi-wavelength (DMW) protocol suite is examined demonstrating a minimum of 100 Mbit/s bandwidth provision for each of 32 ONUs with a maximum 0.085 s packet delay for the worst-performing lower service level agreement (SLA) ONUs.
