Hey Guys,

I emailed chorus last month and asked them what the theoretical maximum speed of the "chorus ONT" is? - didn't get a reply.

I would assume it would have been 10/1000 or Gigabit.

but i just had a look at this website and on page 64 it looks like it could be 10Gigabit.

http://www.crownfibre.govt.nz/media/18404/chorus%20ufb%20services%20agreement%20bitstream%20operations%20manual%20(3).pdf


I know 1G and 10G speed plans are some time away but they really should tell us the spec of there equipment.

also i was given a cisco srp521w from ISP and im going to a draytek vigor 2130n soon, is this still the best box on the market to get?
I like how its theoretical maximum throughput is 800M.

Any answers will be appreciated - "ChorusVan" might know the answer to my question.,


Cheers,

The fastest GPON service on offer today is 100/50mb.

You can get faster service but be prepared to pay serious money for it.

I'm a little confused by your question and what you're actually wanting to know.

The maximum throughput is defined by the capabilities of GPON which is 2.4Gbps down and 1.2Gbps up. The maximum the ONT can deliver to a customer is 1Gpbs as it only has a GE port on it.

As for plans the maximum available at present is 100/50. If you want speeds above that you'll need to move to a P2P connection.

Chorus have released a draft document detailing how they will contend the GPON network to introduce speeds over 100Mbps by early to mid 2014.

-ONT has a GBE port on it - that is what I was looking for ..

Just got to remember that the 2.4GB/s GPON downstream is shared with potentially 24 others, so while they can deliver 1Gb/s to any ONT there will be contention within the local loop. Currently CFH have dictated a dimensioning that has no contention within the local loop, ie 24 users/GPON on 100/50 plans. But as these are residential plans there is an expectation of contention at some point if moving to GigE connections.

To be honest, I still struggle to understand why you need GigE on a WAN connection, where and what is the content that will use it, please explain, unless you are a data centre where you will be doing wildly different connections compared to what we are talking about here then I am still to be convinced.

Currently I work with schools, some very large, but even with schools with 200+ Win7 PC's and 500+ BYOD devices (ipads/tablets/chrome books etc) we still dont see our firewalls stessing their 100/50 WAN uplinks.

My question was purely asking about the maximum speed output of the ONT, as we have seen chorus announce the 200mb plans coming early 2014, it would be a shame if current ONTs only had 100mb ports on them, it looks like chorus have future proof ed their ONTs for a good while.

I download a shut tonne, Game hard and backup my pc to the cloud, also apple TV's and media portals scattered around the house, about 400gb month

I like speed, hence my question.

Cheers guys

-Steve

Off the top of my very tired head I recall the pretty lil LAN light glows/blinks green for 10/100 and orange for gigabit ethernet. That is the lazy way I ask customers to find out of they have a gig WAN port router (that is setup correctly).
