Title: Multiple star wavelength division multiplexing passive optical networks using a wavelength assignment method

Abstract: The present invention discloses a multiple star wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network system using a wavelength assignment method. In a multiple star wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network system using a wavelength assignment method according to the present invention, only one WDM-PON system can provide services for a plurality of subscribers who is distributed in a wide range of area through multiple starring, by setting one or more band for transmitting up-stream signals as an up-stream basic band and one or more band for transmitting down-stream signals as a down stream basic band, respectively, and by dividing each of the up-stream basic band and the down stream basic band into a plurality of wavelength sub-bands and assigning the divided sub-bands to different areas using a wavelength division multiplexer/de-multiplexer which splits a band into two or more sub-bands.
