ONT Easy Start

Activate FTTH users faster and at a lower cost

Automation enables simple and cost-effective PON service activation

ONT Easy Start speeds up and simplifies optical network termination (ONT) provisioning. It transforms today’s complex, multi-step ONT activations into an automated process. It provides an easy self-provisioning process that can be used by end user and field technicians to speed up and simplify ONT provisioning. You can increase end user experience while simultaneously cutting ONT activation costs.

Accelerate time to market

Automated ONT activation accelerates the introduction of broadband services up to 25% or speeds up ONT and Residential Gateway(RGW) swap programs.

Reduce operating cost

Customer self-installation allows service providers to reduce ONT activation costs up to 50%. In cases where a technician needs to come onsite, costs are saved by reducing onsite time and preventing configuration errors.

Improve customer experience

Automation reduces errors and increases first-time-right ONT and activations up to 99%. User self-install enables end users to self-install their services at their own convenience.

Simplify activation processes

ONT Easy Start is a vendor-agnostic solution. Service providers can use it to establish one process for the entire PON broadband access installed base.

Automated ONT activation in 3 steps

With ONT Easy Start, you can give your subscribers the high-bandwidth offerings they want sooner — with less hassle. As soon as the ONT is onsite, subscribers or field technicians follow three simple steps to provision broadband services:

  1. Connect to the activation web portal via QR code scan or a captive web portal
  2. Enter assigned user-name and password.
  3. Click once for activation.

Required activation steps and fiber connectivity tests to get fiber customers online are then automatically executed in no time.
