4 great NEW features added to UFiber firmwave version 3.0!

4 great NEW features added to UFiber firmwave version 3.0!

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. Management VLAN 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. Client Isolation 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.

MiRO to showcase their wireless-fibre hybrid solution at the FTTX Council Conference 2018

Join us at the 2018 FTTX Council Conference in Durban, 10-12 September, as we, amongst other industry experts, unveil the latest developments in fibre solution technology.   South Africa’s core fibre infrastructure has been developed for many years, however, last-mile fibre connectivity is still at a minimum, with less than 300 000 fibre-to-the-home connections across South Africa, according to a recent report released by ICASA. This presents a massive opportunity for our industry to succeed in our combined mission to provide the nation with high-speed internet connectivity. The 2018 FTTX Council Conference, held in Durban from 10-12 September, will focus on the latest developments in the fibre industry, while educating industry stakeholders on why and how high-speed fibre connectivity can be successfully delivered to communities in the coming years. One of our expert Product Managers, Ryan Dunford, who will be in attendance, believes that, “visiting MiRO at the FTTX Conference will give you a better understanding of what is needed in order for you, as a company, to acquire high-speed internet connectivity, or you as a service provider, to introduce fibre and fibre-like wireless technology into your portfolio.” He elaborates that, “we will be able to talk about customizable solutions, last-mile internet connectivity, and our training, which adds value by giving you the opportunity to become experts in the industry.” We will be showcasing high-capacity wireless backhaul links feeding into last-mile fibre connectivity, or into license-free, high-capacity 60GHz Point-to-Multipoint solutions. These solutions comprise of our BDCOM passive-and active fibre products, our carrier-grade E-band solution from Siklu as well as our cost-effective high-capacity fibre-like wireless products from IgniteNet.
