This study outlines the high-speed light sources in high-speed passive optical local area communication networks. Directly modulated laser measured is selected as a light source for data rate transfer of 40 Gb/s for propagation range up to 20 km. Optical output power after fiber-optic cable is measured. Signal power amplitude, Q-factor, and data error rates after the receive side are also measured. Hybrid optical amplifier, optical filters, and electrical filters are used for upgrading the network performance operation efficiency. The study assured that the optical communication network can be extended to 20 km distance with data rates of 40 Gb/s with achieving maximum Q-factor of 14.98 and minimum data rates of 3.55 ×10–51.
