In this paper, a performance analysis is reported for optical code division multiplexing (OCDM) system for longreach passive optical network (LR-PON) systems by taking into account multiple access interference (MAI), single-mode fiber (SMF) channel effects and receiver noise. The mathematical model representing the 2-D optical code parameters for different receiver structures used in optical code division multiplexing access (OCDMA) are developed, optimized and implemented using Matlab simulations, where channel imperfections, such as attenuation losses and chromatic dispersion have been considered. In the proposed system configuration, we have investigated the probability of error for Back-to-Back (B2B) with conventional correlation receiver (CCR), SMF with CCR receiver and SMF channel with successive interference cancelation (SIC) receiver. Additionally, SMF channel with SIC receiver system performance has been addressed by taking into account two key metrics, such
as BER and Q-factor as function of simultaneous users, and fiber length, respectively. We have managed to substantially improve simultaneous multiuser data transmission over significant fiber lengths without use of amplification, where Q-factor of 6 at fiber length of 190 and 120 km, while a SIC receiver using 5 stages cancelation is employed for 2D prime hop system (2D-PHS) and for 2D hybrid codes (2D-HC), respectively.
