CLEC and FTTP H.248/Megaco

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.
