Fibre to the Home (FTTH) is a unique technology being deployed for Voice, Data & Video through single fibre. BSNL FTTH is one such option. The fibre connectivity having unlimited bandwidth and state of the art technology provides fix access platform to deliver the high speed broadband from 256 Kbps to 100 Mbps, IPTV having different type of contents like HDTV and future coming 3D TV and range of voice telephony services.
The FTTH is not new in India now. Its potential has already been demonstrated during Commonwealth Games where gigabit internet connectivity was available on fibre. The technology is new and is yet to catch on. India has 90% of the connections on DSL based Copper lines. I had an Airtel DSL Copper line connection working at my earlier place of residence. The service offered IPTV, Internet broadband and Voice telephony. But I decided to go in for BSNL FTTH at my new place of residence. But we had a dilemma whether we would be in a position to utilize my BEETEL 450 BXI ADSL+WIFI router for wireless connection. BSNL FTTH was providing HUWAEI EchoLife HG850a ROUTER along with FTTH connection and additional WIFI router was needed.
In our browser, we entered 192.168.100.1, the default IP address for HUWAEI routers.
After entering the username “telecomadmin” and password “admintelecom”, we could enter in to the HUWAEI and could view the configuration details.
The next step was adding BEETEL 450 BXI on LAN for BSNL FTTH (See the image below)
WIFI Router was accessed using 192.168.100.2 from browser as shown below.
Thereafter all WAN connection in BEETEL ADSL+WIFI were deleted. DHCP was unchecked and a new IP address of 192.168.100.2 was assigned to the BEETEL router. Necessary securities were activated and key was assigned. BEETEL router was then rebooted and Ethernet cable unplugged. Now the laptop was able to detect the wireless network. The security key was entered in to the laptop, enable internet access.
