GPON SFP VS GEPON SFP Compatibility? FTTH Network

Will a GPON SFP work with a GEPON Network? I know Mikrotik sells GPON SFP's but I wasn't sure if they were downward compatible with GEPON Fiber to the Home (FTTH) OLT's?

Has anyone used GPON SFP's with GEPON OLT's?

Also, can a Mikrotik Router be used as a GPON OLT?

Re: New Windows Version of TheDude? Is this in the works?

Can you migrate configuration from the Windows Version to the RouterOS version? We have hundreds of devices and links managed and I would hate to have to reconfigure all of these manually in the RouterOS version.

Re: CCR1009 turning Routed Ports into Switch Ports

A couple other quick questions: 1. If I set ports 1-3 to use port 4 as the master switch port can I physically use port 4 for a 4th AP or do I need to leave it unplugged? 2. For routing to the rest of the Mikrotik ports from the switch ports do I assign the IP Address for the switch port segment to ...

Re: CCR1009 turning Routed Ports into Switch Ports

Nice, I did not know any ports had a hardware switch chip. I'm assuming it would be possible to software switch the other ports, but ports 1-4 would be preferred because they would be hardware switched. Also is there any performance disadvantage to using ports 1-4 as routed ports since they have a s...

Do any 3rd parties currently make any 10 GbE RouterOS boxes, or has anyone here built their own?

No firewalls blocking the traffic, I just checked the Mikrotik's and they don't have any firewall statements enabled and since this is only affecting 1 external route it would have to be a specific statement directly related to the /27 which is not setup.

They are all using public ip's for their interfaces although the OSPF processes are using loopbacks that are using private IP's.
