Beta testers of the SIMBA Fibre Broadband can now collect the ONT from SIMBA at Kaki Bukit.
The LINK-ALL ONT, bearing the model code LAU-G150-C, stands out for its compact size compared to counterparts in the telecommunications industry. This ONT, procured from a Shenzhen-based company in China, is designed with simplicity in mind.
Equipped with a singular 2.5 Gbps port, the ONT facilitates a seamless connection to your router or switch. Another port is designated for linking the optical fiber cable to the Termination Point.
To unlock its full potential, consider enhancing your setup by upgrading and pairing it with either a 2.5 Gbps switch for a wired configuration or a WiFi 6/6e router featuring a 2.5 Gbps WAN port to optimize bandwidth utilization.
If you currently employ a WIFI 5 or WIFI 6 router with a Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) WAN port, your existing setup will continue to operate normally. However, keep in mind that the bottleneck in your system lies with the router, which is constrained to a 1 GbE speed. Nonetheless, it’s worth noting that most wireless devices such as smartphones and laptops may not even achieve wireless speeds of up to 1 Gbps. You can continue using your current equipment temporarily and consider upgrading to a 2.5 Gbps WAN WIFI router when the prices become more favorable in the market.
It’s important to note that voice line services are not supported by this ONT. Additionally, there remains uncertainty regarding its configurability in bridge or router mode.
- ONU and ONT is basically the same device. ONT is an ITU-T term, whereas ONU is an IEEE term.
