This paper suggests the migration of tree to ring topology to enable the signal flow continuously in the case of failure occurs specifically in random or scattered placement topology. Our proposal is the first reported up to this time in which the upstream signal flows in anticlockwise in ring topology when the restoration scheme activated. The research highlights on restoration scheme proposed against failure in working line at the drop region for Fiber-to-the Home (FTTH) with a passive

FTTH based network design is simulated by using OptiSystem 7.0 in order to investigate the impact of single amplifier applied to the system by observing the received power, OSNR and achievable node. The results obtained will be the preliminary design towards to have quality signal at the end of the final node.
