Today, we are going to talk about Huawei ONT Products.
I have a Question!
We will see these three nouns when we’re talking about GPON.
What are their differences?
To describe simply, OLT means Optical Line Terminal. ONU is the Optical Network Unit. ONT means Optical Network Terminal.
OLT use fiber cables, adapters and others to connect with ONU and ONT, in order to build ODN (Optical Distribution Network).
Both of ONU and ONT are client-side devices, no difference in nature, but if you have to distinguish, it can be seen from the name difference.
ONT is the optical network terminal, applied to the end user, and ONU refers to the optical network unit, which is with the end user. There may be other networks.
Give a simple example, such as in a district, ONT is directly on the user’s home equipment, and ONU may be placed in the corridor, each user through the switch and other equipment connected to the ONU.
Take Huawei products for example, Huawei MA5680T is the OLT. Huawei HG8240H is the ONT. ONU is the outdoor ODF.
The line is like this:
【Optical Transmission Network】
【ODF，Split box, ect.】
【Twisted pair, Cable】
So, which networking company make ONT products?
Huawei ONT products series is the EchoLife Series.
User-side Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) for Fiber-To-The-House (FTTH) solutions provide high-bandwidth access for Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) environments using GPON technologies.
EchoLife HG series ONTs provide POTS ports and FE/GE ports with auto-sensing function for seamless, high-performance access.
Provide enhanced and future-proof services with Huawei’s EchoLife HG series ONTs; available in models for intelligent Layer 2 bridging, bridging + POTS voice, and as a gateway supporting multiple Ethernet, POTS, Wi-Fi, and USB ports.
Deliver FTTH access for home and SOHO users with Huawei’s EchoLife Optical Network Terminals for GE data, GE data + POTS, or with GE, POTS, and Wi-Fi gateways. It has these features:
★Plug-and-play: Configurations are automatically delivered by the Network Management System so on-site commissioning is not required
★Remote diagnosis: POTS ports support loop line tests and call simulation tests, implementing remote fault detection; remote batch upgrades of up to 2,000 devices each hour
★Link monitoring: IEEE 802.1ag-based Ethernet OAM implements End-to-End (E2E) link detection and network isolation
★Energy wise: SOC chips integrate PON, voice, gateway, and LSW modules, with up to 25% power savings
This part, we introduce the ONT models. These models are 10G PON ONT, Bridge ONT and WIFI ONT.
10G PON ONT includes HN8055Q and HN8245Q.
Table 1 shows several model specifications.
