ECI modem on Huawei Cabinet


[link to this post]
 
Is it normal for Openreach to provide an ECI modem for lines on a Huawei Cabinet?

They used to match modems to cabs, now you get what they have on the van at the time. I have two ECI in the cupboard and a Huawei connected to an ECI cab...

Not true, you got what the engineer had been issued by their stores department.

Kinda negates the whole point doesn't it ? You haven't matched modem to DSLAM.

I thought Openreach was very "shocked" 7 "disappointed" at the use of ECI's on Huawei cabinets and vowed that it wouldn't be the case any longer... I remember this coming up after the G.INP balls up!

Correct, deliberately as I want line stats and I can't be bothered tearing down the ECI to do it and I didn't lose any speed compared to the ECI modem I used previously by doing it.

DSLStats doesnt appear to support the ECI modem.
Is there an alternative to get line stats from an ECI Openreach modem?

I have a Billion Bipac 8800 NL that works great and gives full stats but because I have a congested line, Zen not keen to raise fault with Openreach until I put the ECI modem back on.

There is but you have to take the modem apart, various articles on how to do it. This article gives some idea of what needs to be done on an ECI modem.
