Q: What is the difference between MA5683T and MA5603T?

A: 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. The same as MA5680T and MA5600T.

Q: What is the difference between MA5683T and MA5680T?

A: 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 most hot selling Huawei OLT?

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

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

A: Yes, you may contact our sales representative or our support team.

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

A: 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?

A: Yes, with GPBD board, 8 C+ 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?

A: 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?

A: 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: What is the difference between different GPON board?


Board GPON Type Port Quantity Optical Module Maximum Split Ratio
H807GPBD 1G-GPON 8 SFP (Class B+ and Class C+/Class C++) 1:128
H805GPBD/H806GPBD 1G-GPON 8 SFP (Class B+ and Class C+/Class C++) 1:128
H802GPFD 1G-GPON 16 SFP (Class B+ and Class C+/Class C++) 1:128
H805GPFD 1G-GPON 8 SFP (Class B+ and Class C+/Class C++) 1:128
H802XGBC 10G-GPON 4 SFP (Class B+ and Class C+/Class C++) 1:128

H805GPFD and H807GPBD are most selected items.

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

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

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

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

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