We currently use MGCP on our ONTs. The configuration file is
downloaded at boot, and contains the IP address of the our switch.
In theory, the IP address could be set in the configuration file to
point to a different service provider on a per ONT basis.
Unbundling of FTTH access is still going to be painful. I would
suspect the ILEC would demand that their ONT be used. This could
lead to interop issues.
If I were asking for unbundled FTTH, I'd probably want to run my own
OLT, and have my own (or ILEC supplied, but designated) splitter in
the ILEC cabinet. I would then lease feeder fibre from a POI to the
splitter cabinet, then fibre subloops to the customer.
The problem becomes that if too many competitors want access to the
same cabinet, there is the possibility that there may not be enough
room or feeder fibres.
