Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a virtual lab to allow the design of new optical devices to be embedded into the network before it is sent for fabrication. A new 2×3 Optical splitter is designed and tested for the effectiveness of the lab. The device is designed using the OptiBPM software before being exported to Optical System to embed into the network. The Optical Splitter 2×3 has two different inputs and divides 50% of the input power to the first and third arm. While on the second arm, 50% of both input signals are combined. Before the design can be exported, they need to be sliced into a few parts for them to function as desired. Both of the designs will be embedded into Fiber-to-The-Home (FTTH) network test pad to be tested. Analysis of the design is done based on the performance before and after they are embedded into the network and based on the losses of output power to the input and maximum Q factor. The result shows that total insertion loss 2×3 Optical Splitter before being exported is 0.1899dB and changed to 0.3464dB after embedded into the network. The distance that the 2×3 splitter can achieve is up to 28 km at arm 1 and 3. While for arm 2, it can only achieve up to 15 km. The result obtained shows that the performance of the designs is better when embedded into the network and the virtual lab is suitable for testing new devices in the network before fabrication.
