Cloud-integrated fiber-wireless (FiWi) networks inheriting advantages of optical and wireless access networks have a broad prospect in the future. As various component failures may occur in cloud-integrated FiWi networks, survivability is becoming one of the key important issues. It is necessary to provide survivability strategies for cloud-integrated FiWi networks. Hence, this paper mainly focuses on the survivability of cloud-integrated FiWi networks against multiple fibers failure. Firstly, in this paper, a novel integer linear programming (ILP) solution is proposed to tolerate the failure of multiple distribution fibers with capacity and coverage constraints in the context of urban area. Then, considering the complexity of ILP models, an efficient heuristic scheme is proposed, in order to get the approximate solutions of ILP. Simulation results and analysis give the configurations of optical network units (ONUs) and wireless routers with different constraints and show the network coverage of clients for different number of ONUs and wireless routers with ILP solution and heuristic approach, respectively.
