Fiber technology, which provides high bandwidth in data, sound and video traffic in communication networks, as well as in new applications, has reached the end user. FTTH (Fiber-to-the-Home) and PON (Passive Optical Networks) technologies, which reduce costs, have changed our lives. Reaching further distances and more users each passing day is aimed with this structure. In this study, topologies that could be developed to increase the performance of optical communications with passive optical networks are analysed, which is compatible with power budget calculation in theory, with OptiSystem 12.0 simulation program. The effects of electro-optical components which are added to the PON systems are analysed by BER (Bit Error Rate) diagrams, and time domain and spectrum outputs.
