Default Client Settings on the UFiber OLT

Deployment scenario where a UFiber OLT and ONUs are used to provide connectivity to different client sites.

In the example diagram above, a UFiber OLT 4 (UF-OLT-4) is connected to several UFiber ONUs (UF-Nano / UF-LOCO). Each ONU is providing connectivity to an individual client site (location A and B). By default, no communication is allowed between the different client sites. This means that a host present at location A is not able to reach another host at location B. This is applicable to all traffic types (unicast, multicast and broadcast). The Client Isolation feature is used to block this traffic and is enabled by default on the OLT. The feature can optionally be disabled if needed in a specific deployment scenario.

System settings > GPON > IGMP snooping

IGMP snooping: Uncheck
NOTE:This is a global setting that applies to all connected ONUs. It is not possible to only disable to feature for certain clients.
