Active Optical Network

I am trying to create a active optical network(AON) in Optisystem. I searched internet inside out. But i can’t find any project or article to help. All projects are about TDM, WDM, GPON, BPON etc. Nothing about active optical networks.
I know that an AON uses ethernet switch. (And also no project samples in the internet about EPON as EPON is called “Active Ethernet”.) But i cant quite find the right component. When i type “switch” in “find component”, the result is shown in the image following:

And the system i designed is like that:System i designed for AON
I don’t know if this is an AON system or not. Can you help me with that? Any help is appriciated.

Thank you.

      Hello Mr. Ahmad,

      Thank you so much for that article. But the simulation screenshots look blurry in that one. Still that is a golden reference for me.
      I am using OptiSystem 7.0. I will upgrade it to 17.0 soon.
      By the way, do you suggest any keywords for me to dig my search into AON deeper? How can i find more articles or resources like that article?

      Thank you, regards.
