As an Engineer, you are entrusted with the design of an ITU-T G.987 XG- PON FTTB broadband network to provide high bandwidth Internet access to each lecture hall within a university. The university campus is located at 10 Km from the nearest telephone exchange where an optical line terminal (OLT) will be installed. An optical network terminal (ONT) will also be installed in each lecture hall. A single PON port on the OLT will be used to serve 128 lecture halls. A single level of optical split is recommended. All equipment as well as splitter are connectorized. The average distance of the centralised splitter to each ONT is 500m. There are two fusion splices in between the OLT and the splitter; two mechanical splices in between the splitter and each ONT. A Class C optical distribution network (ODN) optics is assumed for this design. Splicing and connector losses are as per TIA 758. The OLT, ONT as well as the optical components specifications are listed below: Optical fiber specifications Optical fiber standard: G652.D Optical fiber channel bandwidth: 20 THz Optical fiber signal to noise ratio at ONT: 15 dB Optical fiber attenuation at 1577 nm: 0.25 dB/Km Optical fiber dispersion coefficient (????) at 1577 nm: 20 ps (nm.Km) Optical fiber dispersion coefficient (????) at 1260 nm: 3.5 ps (nm.Km) ONT optical port specifications Centre RX wavelength: 1577 nm Centre TX wavelength: 1260 nm RX sensitivity: -28 dBm Spectral width (????) of transmitter: 2.0 nm OLT XG-PON optical port specifications Centre RX wavelength: 1260 nm Centre TX wavelength: 1577 nm RX sensitivity: -30 dBm Spectral width (????) of transmitter: 0.1 nm Based on optical distribution network requirements described, fiber and equipment specifications provided, answer the following questions mentioning any assumptions
