Re: My Fluidone FTTPoD install experience

I'm wondering if the space saving might be used to provide room for an integral BBU ?

This feature has been mentioned a fair bit in the past.


Yes, it's this - http://i.imgur.com/CSd7oOa.png BBU/ONT will be integrated.

The new device will actually only have 1 dataport + 1 voice port. So they will no longer support multiple lines.

Due to replace the existing ONTs in September. The other thing is that all new FTTP deployments are Huawei and ECI seems out of the picture now.

Is this for just the FTTPoD install or also the FTTP?

TBH I prefer our current one, also where its all inside that other case, what happens if it gets hot, where is the heat to go.

What if I wanted to get a second fibre connection via a different provider, would they send that down the same fibre as the main fibre connection?

Also how would I find out what version of ONT I have, I don't recall seeing any Huawei or ECI markings on it when they installed it end of last year.

One last thing, why are they replacing all the ONT's in September? mine is working fine.
Or are you referring to all new installs will get the new compact version?

All FTTP installs from September will get the new ONT. Existing installs don't change.

If you want a second connection, then you need one of the older ONTs or you would need a second new ONT installed. It's really rare for a second connection so I guess that's why it's been pulled, especially since you can get up to 1Gig now.

All the ONTs should be marked on the back ECI or Huawei.

This is good to know.

That would suck if you have the new version and you have limited wall space.

I totally agree, I have seen higher speeds reported, BT sell up to 10Gbit (business connection), but it makes no sense in getting higher than 1Gbit for a non business connection, plus the average PC Hardware (Mechanical Hard drives) struggle at half that speed.

Well I am not lifting mine off the wall LOL.

That's an ugly lump -

you would have hoped it might have kept some of the original sleek lines.

How many extra FTTP connections can the fibre itself handle - are additional connections multiplexed onto the same strand or would they use separate fibre strands? In that case, how many fibres are there inside the cable?

Are you doing any sort of automated speed testing to determine if you are receiving your excellent speeds consistently throughout the day?

The current ONTE can supply 4 separate connections.

Which cable are asking about ?
