Combined modem and router hardware for FTTC install


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone know if there is such a beast as router that has the FTTC modem built in to it? I've just had FTTC installed and the need for two plugs, extra cables and an additional box is annoying so wanted to see if there was a deviced that meant I could do away with the modem... Google so far has failed me...

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for me for money, I can tell you I don't have the inclination. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you...

AVM Fritzbox 7390 - supports VDSL2 and ADSL2+ on its built in modem as well as an Ethernet WAN port if you needed it.

Several combined devices available. Though once unlocked, the Openreach device can also perform both functions (modem and router).

Easier perhaps to look at the VDSL CPE chipset solutions available.. Almost all devices have a multi-port ethernet switch controller for routing functionality..
  • Broadcom 6368 (e.g. used in Huawei HG612, Alcatel Cellpipe 7130, ZTE ZXDSL931CII and the ZyXEL P-2812HNU-51c)
  • Lantiq VRX268/VRX288 (e.g. used in ECI B-FOCuS and Fritz!Box 7360),
  • Ikanos Fusiv Vx180 (e.g. Fritz!Box 7390, Sagemcom 2764)
  • Metanoia MT2201/MT3201 (e.g. Draytek 2750 and Draytek 2850)

There are a couple more VDSL2 CPE chipsets. In theory these should work with BT Profile 17a spectrum, but no devices yet available in UK, sfaik..
  • Ikanos Accelity (2Wire/Pace 3800HGV)
  • PMC-Sierra PM4380 (2Wire/Pace 3801HGV)

Fritz!box 7390, Billion BIPAC 8200N, DrayTek Vigor 2750n ... My mind goes blank after that.
