The most popular Huawei ONT
As a world-leading telecom hardware manufacturer, Huawei has several popular Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) that are widely used by internet service providers (ISPs) and customers around the world. The popularity of specific ONT models may vary depending on factors such as region and specific deployment requirements. We will introduce the most popular Huawei ONT products according to the classification of products.
What are ONTs?
ONT, the abbreviation of Optical Network Terminal, plays the final terminal function of photoelectric conversion, Huawei ONTs are classified into the following types based on their functions: Bridge ONTs, Gateway ONTs, and 10G PON ONTs.
The Most Popular Huawei Bridge ONT
A bridge ONT is only responsible for transparent transmission and provides users with Internet access and IPTV channels. You can access the Internet only after successfully dialing on your device such as a router or PC. Some bridge ONTs also support the voice function and can be connected to telephones.
You can enjoy Wi-Fi after connecting a wireless router to a bridge ONT.
EG8120L, HG8310M, HG8010H, HG8321R and HG8321V.
HG8310M has only one GE port. It has two versions: R13 and R15. The difference is that R15 is smaller than R13. In addition, it should be noted that the optic-receiving module is divided into two levels: B+ and C+. The actual application of B+ and C+ is not much different. Unless it is used in a particularly remote area, we recommend choosing C+. Compared with HG8310M, the advantage of EG8120L and HG8321R is that there is one more FE port and POTS port, which can use the telephone function. The memory of EG8120L is only 64G, but there is little effect on actual use. If your mind, you can choose HG8321R, whose memory is 128G. HG8321R and EG8120L also support router mode, but we recommend using bridge mode for use with home routers. Compared with HG8321R, HG8321V has one more controllable RF port, which can use the function of cable TV, and its CATV port can be turned on or off through Huawei OLT.
The most popular Huawei Gateway ONTs
Unlike a bridge ONT, a gateway ONT can automatically allocate IP addresses for routing, and you do not need to dial up to connect to the Internet. Some gateway ONTs also provide dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz) and Wi-Fi6 to support wireless access.
HG8546M, HG8245C, EG8141A5, HG8245Q2, HG8546V5, EG8145V5, EG8145X6, K662c, EG8247H5 and EG8143A5.
2.4G WIFI Huawei Gateway ONTs
HG8546M, HG8245C, and EG8141A5 have 1GE, 3FE, USB, POTS, and 2.4G WIFI. HG8245C is an older-generation product. Compared with HG8546M and EG8141A5, the price has a particular advantage, but the performance is slightly worse. HG8546M is the most widely used model in the Chinese market, and its cost performance is very high. EG8141A5 is the latest generation of products. Its PCB board integration is better. Compared with the previous two models, its performance is better. The 10 Gigabit 5dBi large antenna makes the WIFI coverage wider, faster, and more stable.
EG8247H5 and EG8143A5 are CATV Models, compared with other 2.4G WIFI home gateway models, they have one more RF port, which allows them to realize the function of Cable TV. Second, their RF ports can all be turned on/off by Huawei OLT. EG8143A5 is smaller and slightly newer than EG8247H5.
2.4/5G WIFI Huawei Gateway ONTs
HG8245Q2, HS8546V5, EG8145V5, and EG8145X6 all come with 4 GE ports. They support a 2.4/5G dual-band WIFI network, so the air interface rate of WIFI is much higher than 2.4G single-band models. HG8245Q2 is larger in size and is the product of the previous generation. The built-in 2dbi antenna can barely meet the needs of a home network, based on its stable quality, it is also very popular in many developing countries. The performance of HG8546V5 and EG8145V5 is precisely the same, but the port language of HS8546V5 is Chinese instruction, and EG8145V5 is English instruction. These two products are the most popular dual-band ONTs in the global market. EG8145X6 supports the WIFI6 protocol. K662c is an edge router (AX3000Mbps Wi-Fi 6 Edge ONT) that supports dual-band Wi-Fi 6, supports ultra-broadband access through Ethernet/Wi-Fi/PON uplink technology, and provides users with gigabit dual-band Wi-Fi -Fi 6 and Gigabit Ethernet port. Not only can it be used as an ONT but also as a router and repeater; it also supports mesh networking
The most popular Huawei 10G PON ONTs
The user-side rate of a 10G PON ONT can reach up to 1000 Mbit/s, meeting the requirements of home users on bandwidth-hungry services such as 4K/8K HD video, AR/VR, home cloud, and video calls. It can also provide private line access services of up to 10 Gbit/s.
Mainstream products:HN8546X6, HN8145V, HN8145XR, HN8346V5.
HN8346V5 is a very cost-effective 10G ONT, which supports 2.4G and 5G dual-band WIFI. And HN8546X6 supports WIFI6. HN8145V is a 10G EPON&XG-PON routing gateway device for China Telecom’s gigabit fiber smart home solution, providing 1 POTS voice interface, 3 GE adaptive Ethernet ports, 1 iTV port and dual-band Wi-Fi ( 2.4GHz&5GHz), flexible application, support plug, and play, remote diagnosis, green energy saving, and other features. HN8145V supports 10G EPON technology to realize ultra-broadband access for home users in FTTH networking scenarios. Huawei OptiXstar HN8145XR is the main FTTR of Huawei’s FTTR all-optical home solution. It realizes ultra-broadband access for users through XG-PON or asymmetric 10G EPON technology and provides users with Gigabit dual-band Wi-Fi 6 and downlink optical ports.
