In Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) access network, the optical back-end is vulnerable to the network component failure due to its tree topology. Any failure at the optical back-end may cause huge data loss. Thus, the survivability in FiWi is an important issue, especially the protection for the optical back-end. Some works propose to protect the optical back-end in FiWi by means of the wireless rerouting in the wireless front-end. However, these works cannot guarantee that there are always the available… CONTINUE READING
