For single-technology, single-wavelength PON deployments, the simple broadband power meter is an excellent tool for PON activation and troubleshooting. However, next-generation PON technologies are being deployed on the same fiber plant as current-generation technologies, using independent wavelengths.
The presence of multiple wavelengths on the same fiber presents significant problems for those activating and troubleshooting PON but using only broadband (unfiltered) optical power meters.
