Vigor 2760 Modem Chipset?


[link to this post]
 
Hey Guys

I'm looking at buying a Draytek Vigor 2760 Router and want to know what the VDSL chipset is?

I'm on a Huawei 288 Cab and as far as I know that contains Broadcom based chipset equipment and I would preferably like to match.

Regards.

And what will that give?

Potentially lower speeds?

How will matching the hardware lower speeds?

If anything it would speed them up!

What they are saying is that no proven improvement from matching on VDSL2.

With ADSL/ADSL2+ where you also have widely varying LLU configurations of the DSLAM it was more important, but with Openreach configuring the cabinets in a similar fashion it makes no difference.

Is that still an issue with Fibre ? I know it was for ADSL/2 and 2+.

Oh OK, also having a Broadcom chipset would make it easier for extracting advanced dal stats or could i get the same stats using other chipsets?

I know of several installations where they have obtained a second modem, including my own, and have done comparsions of Huawei and ECI modems against their cabinets. Most of them have found a ECI modem gives higher sync than a Huawei when used with a Huawei cabinet. In my case the improvement was around 5 Mbps.

Oh ok, I do remember seeing something on here mentioning that a while back... I would still like to know what chipset is in the router though?
