gosh, only 2x2? may aswell limit it to only 30/10 plans :P

 

 

Sorry to semi-hijack this thread - but why do you say this?  In the 5Ghz band it's possible to get 867Mb/s isn't it? (I realise real throughput is probably a third of that, but even then you're looking at a decent 200 Mb/s)

 

Or is there a joke here that's flown over my head?

Just had one of the new Nokia/Gen 3 ONT installed this morning. Discovered a fish hook - the power supply has a different orientation to the old Gen 2 ONT power supplies. Unfortunately Chorus technical documentation (page 8) specifies that power sockets in star wiring cabinets should be orientated in a particular direction to suit the Gen2 power supplies, but this means that Gen3 power supplies block the door from shutting. Not a biggie for me - I'll just have to swap my four-way power outlet for 2x two-way outlets, and in the meantime I've got an multibox in there.

 

Might make things interesting when they roll these out to replace Gen2 boxes (e.g. when they die) as there might not be room for a multibox and Chorus installers can't do mains electrical work.

 

 

 

Also worth noting is that installers must ensure that the antenna can be fully extended - this means you can't have the ONT close to the bottom of a cabinet, even if the cabinet is fully metal and there's no hope of wifi signal getting out.

Also thought I'd share a photo of the nifty new base that Chorus uses with the Gen3 ONT. This has a cover, then the ONT clips over the that.

 

Still a shame IMHO that there's an exposed loop of the fibre patch between the base and ONT (just like with the old ONT/base) as those fibre patch cables are pretty delicate, and bound to get tugged and plugged/unplugged by curious customers/kids, especially when not installed in a cabinet. But I can understand that would be difficult to design for, while protecting the cable from tight turns.
