4 great NEW features added to UFiber firmwave version 3.0!
Ubiquiti’s UFiber range of market disruptive, robust fibre solution hardware, that allows you to quickly and successfully jump from an operator to an FISP just got an upgrade with the release of their latest firmware – UFiber 3.0. The UFiber team have squeezed even more functionality out this hard-working range of products with the addition of 4 advanced features which will help operators achieve even greater success:
Traffic Shaping using the OLT
This long-awaited feature allows for implementing bandwidth control directly on the OLT and eliminates the need for an expensive core router to handle traffic shaping. It is now even easier to limit the bandwidth to the customer’s subscription level.
Previously it was required to have a physical connection to the management port on the OLT for access. We have now added a management VLAN option to the SFP+ port to allow for both management and network traffic on a single port.
DHCP Option 82
For increased security and ease of deployment, we have added the feature to use DHCP Option 82. Toggling this option on in the OLT will cause ONUs to add identifying information to the DHCP packet. With a properly configured DHCP server, this information can also assign IPs based on the location of the ONU.
The default OLT setting prevents ONUs from accessing each other. Version 3.0 allows turning client isolation on or off for those situations where you would like traffic to pass between PONs.
