We use the Adtran ONT solutions. The configuration is Adtran TA5000 with an Active Ethernet 24-Port Module (1187561F1) feeding an ONT TA324E (1287737G2) at the customer premise.
For power we are using the Cyber Power CSN27U12v-NA3 units.
The clam shell we are using to put the ONT in is TA350 ONT NID HSG SPLICE (1187770G1)
All of these part numbers should be available on Adtrans website to look up.

> At recent hearings, I stuck my foot deep into my mouth (as I often do).
> So I am now tasked to find the relative cost of the ONT/UPS compared to the cost of the FTTP drop to the home (in a Flexnap environment).
> From what I had read in the past, the ONT/UPS represent a major portion of the costs to connect a home to an existing Flexnap FTTP system as the drop itself is now dirt cheap to install with unskilled workforce (no need for laser splicing since flexnap is plug and play).
> I know that the Aussie NBN had considered ditching the UPS to greatly reduce the cost to reduce homes, so I have to hunt down those documents (which predate existing pro-copper govt).
> Does ayone have numbers for ONT/UPS or could point me to such ?
> I assume manpower to install the ONT/UPS in homes is a large part of the cost inside the home ?
> And is there any evidence that the actual drop to the home with Flexnap FTTP is cheaper than a drop using copper from the splice panel on pole to the home ?
> Any/all information would be helpful. (this is convince the regulator that an independent ISP who buys the ONT/UPS to be used by one of its customers relieves the incumbent telco from a major portion of the cost to connect a home, which, according to telcos, represent 1/3 of total cost of FTTP deployment.
