We experimentally characterize a bidirectional 2.5 Gb/s UDWDM-PON system based on Nyquist shaped DQPSK with digital signal processing in real-time. The optical distribution network power budget of this system is evaluated and in coexistence of UDWDM channels with upstream TWDM-PON and RF Video Overlay signals, a set of optimum parameters and their impact on the network operation is driven. Additionally, we report the first field-trial of bidirectional coherent Nyquist UDWDM-PON using real-time transceivers based on commercial FPGAs, coexisting with the deployed GPON, RF Video Overlay and NG-PON2 technologies. A -44.5 dBm receiver sensitivity is achieved for 64×2.5 Gb/s DQPSK downstream channels and a 17 dB tolerance in dynamic power range of upstream channels is performed.
