Newbie question - is the 6100 directly compatible with this fiber connection?
Asking if anybody with knowledge can help. Recently acquired a 6100 and curious if my residential fiber connection can plug straight in to the 6100 without an intermediary router. Is there an adapter I can use in the fiber WAN port to permit this?
Here's some photos for reference.
You need a SFP Transceiver Module for GPON.
Look at your old GPON Terminal to find the specifications.
Indeed, GPON is not SFP+. What you have there is just a bare fiber and that needs to be connected to a GPON ONT to do anything useful with it.
It's possible to get a GPON SFP+ module that could allow that but it's untested in the 6100 as far as I know. There's a good chance it would not work especially if it's anything other than 1G. There are quite a few 2.5G connections like that.
