How do you know the port type on the ONT?suri
Hi, dear friends.
Today, the content of this blog how to log in to the ONT WebUI to view the Ethernet port information and identify the port type of the device based on the rate of each port.
As we know, the three most common Ethernet speeds today are 100 Mbps, 1,000 Mbps and 10Gbps, which represent the number of Megabits or Gigabits that can be transmitted each second.
Fast Ethernet: 100 Mbps
The Fast Ethernet standard (IEEE 802.3u) was a marked improvement over Ethernet, raising the transmission speed from 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps and improving its error detection and correction rates.
There are three types of Fast Ethernet, based on the cable being used.
100BASE-TX is for level 5 UTP cable
100BASE-T4 is for level 3 UTP cable
100BASE-FX is for fiber-optic cable
Gigabit Ethernet: 1,000 Mbps
Gigabit Ethernet (IEE 802.3) was originally developed to be used as the backbone of large networks, connecting servers, routers and switches. It’s 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet, with transfer rates of 1000 Mbps, or 1 Gbps.
10 Gigabit Ethernet: 10,000 Mbps
10 Gigabit Ethernet (IEEE 802.3ae) is the latest Ethernet standard and, with a transfer rate of 10 Gbps, or 10,000 Mbps, it’s 10 times faster than Gigabit Ethernet.
In fact, you can also directly view the properties of the LAN port through the PC, when you plug the computer’s network cable into the LAN port of the ONT, check the lower right corner of the computer network display, the local link line speed shows 1Gbps is the GE port, shows 100Mbps is the FE port.
