Details of BT's FTTP ONT?


[link to this post]
 
What ONT do BT use for their FTTP installations?

Can any one tell me the specifications and where I might be able to buy one?

Why would you want to buy your own ONT, when you wouldn't be able to provision it?

If you're intending to simulate BT FTTP, do you really need to present your simulation via an ONT, which would mean having a GPON head-end as well. Surely presenting your simulation via Ethernet is enough.

I just have to connect one end to a bit of fibre when I have installed it, and the other end to a router.

The router end will likely work, whether the fibre end will work depends on the specification, and whether it is compatible with what Gigaclear would provide.

With 4 ethernet ports and two telephone sockets, it surprises me that that these are not routers, or capable of being so.

Not sure what your trying to achieve, but if your just running some fibre point to point and want to terminate it, just use a media converter.

I'd expect you to rent the ONT from Gigaclear as part of their service package. It seems that you may be responsible for the drop fibre and its installation (unlike with BT Openreach FTTP), but I'm not aware of any fibre provider that operates a bring your own ONT service, not least because of the potential compatibility and provisioning issues.

If you want to bring your own router, that's a different matter. You can presumably reject Gigaclear's router if you wish or take it as a spare, then plug your own router in to the ONT's Ethernet port.

If the issue is a desire to be in control of your own router, then is there an option for a small block of routed IPv4 from Gigaclear.

Then you can use their ONT/router to handle the IP block and pass some of the IP addresses un molested to your own business grade router/firewall device.

As Gigaclear probably use remote monitoring to ensure no widespead network issues they may require their specific ONT on the end of the fibre. The answer would be to ask Gigaclear.

I need a 2nd wireless access point and If I want to get above 100mbps I have to replace my existing 2nd router. I am also quite keen to have some spare equipment to assist with problem diagnosis. One option is just to ask Gigaclear for a spare another option is to see what else might be available but it looks a more difficult problem to solve than replacing my 'frog' with an ADSL router.
