This paper describes the demonstration of an energy efficient orthogonal frequency division multiplexing passive optical network using the dynamic signal to noise ratio (SNR) management and adaptive modulation. Controlling the calculation precision and modulation format minimizes the energy consumption of digital signal processor while satisfying the requirements of bit error ratio. We show that the calculation precision and modulation format can be optimized according to the optical received power, and realize a 58.7% effective energy efficiency per bit in an FPGA-based receiver experimentally.
