The GPON SFP module is advertised as fully compliant with ITU-T G.984 standards.
This notion is a bit misleading misleading since the current RouterOS implementation breaks the specification by not implementing any of the required GPON authentication methods.
ITU-T G.984.3 specifies two authentication methods that must be supported by GPON ONU's:
1. Authentication by serial number
2. Authentication by PLOAM password (Registration ID)
Authentication by serial
This requires the ONU's serial number to be know in advance (before discovering the ONU on the OLT).
This seems to be supported since ROS 6.35rc33:
ethernet - add option to see S-GPON-ONU module, GPON side SN in "/int eth mon sfp#";
Update: Turns out this is NOT supported. See http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 36#p533413
Authentication by PLOAM password
This requires a method for setting the Registration ID in the ONU from which the password will be generated.
This is NOT supported by RouterOS.
Recap: The RouterOS implementation for GPON SFP isn't compliant with ITU-T G.984 standards as it doesn't support any of the specified authentication methods.
Is this something we can expect to be fixed?
