Q: What is the difference between MA5683T and MA5603T?

MA5603T is multi service based while MA5683T is just OLT, MA5603T can support service like ADSL, VDSL, GPON etc, while MA5683T only supports GPON, P2P etc, but their hardware and configuration command is the same.

Q: What is the difference between MA5683T and MA5680T?

The only difference is capacity, MA5683T max support 6 service slots, MA5680T max support 16 service slots. So MA5683T with smaller chassis.

Q: What is the best-selling Huawei OLT according to Huanetwork figure?

MA5683T is the best-selling OLT, next is MA5680T.

Q: Do you have OLT in your Huanetwork Lab for remotely login test?

Yes, we have OLT ready for test, you may contact our sales person for remotely login test.

Q: Do you provide configuration manual to me if we purchase MA5683T from you?

Yes, you may contact our sales person to require it after you purchased OLT from Huanetwork.

Q: Can I get technical support from Huanetwork if we purchase MA5683T from you?

Yes, Huanetwork has experienced technical team on Huawei FTTx solution, however, you may need to purchase technical support service from us as by default we only provide one year hardware warranty.

Q: Does MA5683T support AC power?

No, only support DC power, but you can purchase a telecom level AC to DC converter if you just have AC power source.

Q: Does the GPON SFP Module included in the bundle?

Yes, with GPBD board, 8 B+ SFP Module are included for free.

Q: Can I use MA5683T main control board SCUN as uplink so as to save the uplink board cost?

Yes, you can, but we don’t suggest, as Huawei OLT SCUN load balance is not well supported, so most customers are using SCUN in active/standby mode, if OLT lose power, which SCUN will work as the active SCUN will be randomly, which may affect service, also if the link is down, the active SCUN will not shift to the standby SCUN (it will only shift when SCUN board is down), then service may get affected also.

Q: Can I have 1000 Base-T as uplink?

Yes, instead of GICF uplink board you can purchase GICG uplink board, if use GICF, you can buy a electrical SFP module then you can have 1000 Base-T.

Q: Can I buy 10G uplink board instead of GE?

Yes, then you may request Huanetwork sales quote you X2CS board instead of GICF uplink board, each X2CS provide 2*10G ports.

Q: Are Huawei SmartAX MA5600T/MA5603T/MA5680T/MA5683T end of life?

No, all of them are not end of life, you may get the information from manufacturer website, it is just the software version V800R006 end of life, not the equipment, V800R006 is replaced by new software version like V800R008, V800R011, V800R013 etc. 

Q: What is the difference between different GPON board?
Board GPON Type Port Quantity Optical Module Maximum Split Ratio ONU based shaping

SFP (Class B+ and Class C+) 1:128 No


SFP (Class B+ and Class C+) 1:128 Yes


SFP (Class B+ and Class C+) 1:128 Yes


SFP (Class B+ and Class C+) 1:128 Yes


XFP 1:128 Yes

Q: Does MA5683T support 10G GPON?

Yes, but the bottleneck is the uplink bandwidth.

Q: Can I use a 3rd party ONT with the MA5683T?

We don’t suggest so, as the understanding of TR069/OMCI protocol may different between different vendors.

Q: Can you offer MA5683T MIB to us?

You may check the details with Huanetwork sales person.

Q: What is the difference between GPON B+ and C+ GPON transceiver?

Q: Can I use 1:128 split ratio with B+ SFP Module?

Yes, but not suggested, most of Huanetwork customers even use C+ module, are max using 1:64 split ratio.

Q: Do you also offer FTTH tool and accessories?

Yes, as a FTTx solution provider, also we offer FTTx accessories like FTTH tool box, optical splitter, terminal box, patch cord, power system etc.
