Has anyone ever come across this : The way it has been explained to me they are in a new sub division where they have fibre optic to the house. The Telecom tech has simply installed a Ethernet port in the study/office.

Do ya just plug straight into it? Do you still need to authenticate somehow?

Help

Hi Ali, where exactly are you. If you are as you say on a FTTH GPON then the tech will have setup your PC with a static IP that is associated with the port you are on as configured by the ONT which will be on the outside of your home, hence they know who you are, you dont need a login. If you want to have more than one pc connected you will need to get a router and move those static IP addresses, subnets, gateway and DNS settings to the router.

Cheers
Cyril


PS would be keen to see what kind of ping and download speeds you get on that service.

Oh I see.

The PC was not there when the tech called, so nothing will be setup on that end.

I will let you know what the service is like :-)

Mission Heights is Telecoms first trial system, they have several others commisioned now. I understand it is BPON rather than GPON, not that it makes a big difference to the end outcome other than local agregate download speed is limited to 620Mb/s rather than 2.4Gb/s,  I would expect them to upgrade it over time.

Probably find that DHCP is used so no user intenvention needed, whatever its all tied to your ONT so they know who you are, no authentication by you is needed.

Orignally Telecom installed BPON there, I presume that will still be what it in there and continueing to be installed there unless they have decided to upgrade, I dont know who the supplier is. All other (newer/current) FTTH systems are using Alcatel 7342 OLT and their various ONT offerings.

Big_Al is can you see a make/model of the ONT, this will be on the outside wall near your power meter or inside in a similar area.


Lurch, Telecom now has a policy that all new subdivisions over a certain size (seems around 100lots or more) are to be FTTH reticulated, here is a current list of FTTH projects.

Kensington Park, Orewa, Telecom, GPON
Karaka Ridge, Papakua, Telecom GPON
TMK Quarry, Mt Wellington, Telecom, GPON
LongBay, Telecom, GPON, in planning
Flat Bush, Manukau, Telecom, GPON
Silverdale/Red Beach, Telecom, GPON
Stonefields GlenInnes, Telecom, GPON

Huka Falls, Taupo, Private, GEPON (i think othewise GPON)
Kaiuma Park, Picton, Pacific.net, GEPON
Gracefield Living, Nelson, Pacific.net, GEPON
Marseden Valley, Nelson, Telcom, GPON, in planning
West Melton, ChCh, Telecom, GPON
Pegasus Town, ChCh, Was Telecom, I thought Telstra took it over, I presume GPON?
Buckland Rd Yaldhurst, ChCh, Telecom, GPON
Peninsula Bay, Wanaka, Telecom GPON
Riverside, Wanka, Telecom GPON
Perriam Cove, Cromwell, Telecom GPON
Jacks Point, Queenstown, Telecom GPON
