This paper proposed for smart drop protection scheme (SDPS) will be implemented in the drop region section to provide the survivable protection scheme. The SDPS will contribute for tree topology in EPON network. The SDPS will ensure the data flow continuously due to breakdown occur in the network and instantly repair operation. The protection mechanism for tree based optical switch will have capability to divert the signal onto protection line according to the types of failure condition and location of failures in access network. This paper will represent for three types of protection mechanism which will employ the shared protection scheme. Three faulty conditions are considered in this article and OptiSystem software is used to prove the solution feasibility.
