BT Hub 6 with Huawei cabinet


[link to this post]
 
I've got a friend who has FTTC. From checkers it's a Huawei cabinet.
Would the BT Business Smart Hub - Type A , aka BTBHub6 , be fine with that Huawei cabinet ?
I seem to recall there were different modem requirements between ECI and Huawei cabinets.
Thanks.

No different modem requirements for each cabinet.

Some prefer and advise others to try match chipset but I found Broadcom modems best on my ECI and Huawei cabinet.

The BT Smart Hub (HH6?) uses a BCM63167.
It's a fairly good Broadcom chipset, and it's Broadcom in the Huawei cabinet.

Is the type B the same chipset? The one made by Arcadyan?

I have a type B smile

Isn't the Smart Hub type B just the FTTP variant? It has a RJ45 WAN port instead of an RJ11 DSL port. It may not have any xDSL chipset inside.

I've never actually seen a picture of a type B for FTTC so couldn't comment if such a thing exists.

edit: can you clarify if it's a business hub 6B or HH6B?

The FTTP version is still a type A. Type B is FTTC.

& noticed your edit: home not business.
