In this paper, we propose the use of two Passive Optical Network (PON)-based network architectures to connect free-space Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) Access Points (APs) within a room with multiple users. We optimize through a Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) model the assignment of mobile OWC users to more than one AP to improve the resilience of the fronthaul network, i.e the OWC system and the wired network linked to APs, and study the impact of users distribution and channel characteristics.
