This proceeding at: SPIE Photonics West 2015. IX Conference Broadband Access Communication Technologies (SPIE). In order to increase the data rates of Multi-Gbit/s links based on large core step index (SI) plastic optical fibers (POF), different modulation scenes have been proposed. Another option is to use multiple optical carriers for parallel transmission of communication channels over the same fiber. Some designs to reach data rates of 14.77 Gb/s in 50 m, with 4 channels have been developed by off line processing. In this work, designs to test the potential of real Multi- Gbit/s transmission systems using commercial products are reported. Special care in designing low insertion loss multiplexers and demultiplexers is carried out to allow for greener solutions in terms of power consumption. This work has been sponsored by the Spanish institutions Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad under project TEC2012-37983-C03-02, Comunidad de Madrid under grant S2013/MIT-2790. Publicado
