A highly reliable wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network architecture for the fifth generation (5G) applications is designed by combining a tree topology with a dual-fiber ring. While the tree topology ensures the transmission quality of the network, the dual-fiber ring topology allows one to achieve flexible switching between the nodes, which aims to provide fault protection and network reliability. The signal transmission under the normal and three types of protection modes are analyzed. The performance analysis verifies the feasibility of the proposed architecture.
