The increasing demand of fixed and mobile applications, and considering that smart grid imposes new requirements to the access networks, in this paper we present an optical access architecture to support home multiservice including smart grid applications. We propose a migration path based in a WDM passive optical network (PON) architecture for the next 10 years. Moreover, we compare the performance of each stage in terms of data bit rate requirements, bit error rate (BER) and jitter.
