wishing to monitor fibre service when using bt or modem


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I found out I am connected to an ECI cabinet so duly used an eci bt or modem which appears to work fine. I would really like to be able to look at the stats on the modem but from what I read the ECI is a bit of a nightmare to unlock.

Could there be any compatabillity issues if I use an hg612 modem instead with regards to sync rate etc.. I intend to flash the hg612 but if its going to upset my service then perhaps I shouldn't bother..

anyone had any experience of an hg612 on eci cabinet?

Thanks

There are plenty out there and no significant level of compatibility complaints.

For a long time, I ran an ECI modem on a Huawei cabinet (opposite pairing to you) and, prior to G.INP, I would see about 1-2 Mbps extra although I moved back to the HG612 mainly because of access to stats.

Just install it and leave it in place for a week to see how it performs ... you may get a little more or a little less, I doubt if there will be a real significant change.

Ok, thanks. Just want to be able to look up the sync info so hence flashing the hg612. Will give it a go shortly and see what happens..

The eci unlock looks way to complicated compared to the hg612...

I have exactly that pairing - HG612 on ECI cab - all works fine.

No experience of an ECI modem, so no idea if it's any better or worse.

Just go HG612 for stats!
