Re: January Newsletter #87

Whats about smaller Channels?
you can be OK with this channel mapping. you can have the 100Mbps clients run the same high MCS, and ultimately serve more safely and do buffering on the FE part. i'm more interested in TDD - cause this is the key to boost client numbers.

channel capacity is so much higher than what we can use currently. let's be easy with that. if you can't have more than MCS9 (SC), then 1Gbps is just ok. .11ad doesn't have channel bonding, so in general you couldn't use the available extra juice anyway. .11ad has at least channel bonding, they sai...

Re: Huawei MA5671A SFP ONT won't fit in CRS317 or CRS328

Ok, so I managed to get the SFP to work. Turns out, you need to force it to 1000M by turning off auto negotiation. Furthermore, you need to power down the CRS, plug in the SFP, and then power up the CRS. It might take a few power down/up cycles, but eventually, the CRS will bring the SFP up and it ...
