The iPhotonix 7251G is an ONT that Sonic utilizes for Small Business Fiber customers. It has the ability to provide two separate Fiber networks, both of which are dedicated 1,000Mbp/s lines. These networks are completely independent of each other and can not be aggregated.
The upload speed for both lines has a combined maximum throughput of 1.244Gbp/s due to back-end limitations.
Glows steady green when the power is on (from a valid AC or UPS source). Flashes when the unit is powering on. Off when the power is off. ''Note: Even though the power light is not illuminated, the device may still be plugged in.''
Glows steady green when the external battery or UPS is charged and the unit is operating on external power. Flashes slowly when the unit is running on battery power only. Flashes quickly when battery power is low and the unit is about to turn off. Off when battery is missing or defective.
Glows red to indicate no optical signal present. Flashes slowly when there is a weak optical signal of the Fiber connection requires cleaning. If this occurs, contact Sonic immediately. Flashes quickly when software upgrade has failed. If this occurs, contact Sonic immediately. Off when the optical signal is present and functioning normally.
Glows steady green when Ethernet connection is operational. Flashes to indicate data transmission in progress. Off means there is no Ethernet connections or the system is not equipped with this feature.
Glows red to indicate an active telephone call (off-hook). Flashes slowly to indicate an incoming call (ringing). Off indicates no call in progress (on-hook) or the system is not equipped with this feature.
This feature is unsupported by Sonic. The light status has no effect on the service, and can be ignored.
Glows green when the Wi-Fi function is active. Flashes to indicate data transmission in progress Off when Wi-Fi is not active or the system is not equipped with this feature.
The active fiber-optic cable from Sonic should extend out from the fiber-optic connector at the back right corner of the Indoor unit.
Cable TV Connection
The Cable port is unsupported by Sonic, and should not have anything plugged into it.
Ethernet LAN Connections
Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port at the back of the Indoor unit and connect the other end to your Ethernet device, usually a PC or an Ethernet hub or switch. Depending on your device's configuration, you may have multiple Ethernet ports, allowing you to connect multiple devices.
Connect one end of an RJ-11 cable to one of the POTS ports at the back of the Indoor unit, and connect the other end to your telephone or fax machine. Depending on your device's configuration, you may have multiple POTS ports, allowing you to connect multiple telephones or fax machines. ''Note: If you are using a VoIP phone, plug it into one of the Ethernet ports instead of the POTS ports.''
Attach the DC power cord provided to the back of the Indoor unit and plug the other end of the power cord (containing the power adaptor) into an AC electrical outlet.
UPS Connection (optional)
The UPS port is unsupported by Sonic, and should not have anything plugged into it.
When pushed in, the unit is powered on. Pushing in the button a second time will cause the button to pop back out and will power off the device. (The on/off switch is only available on certain models).
ONT Battery Backup
With our Fusion Fiber services we offer to provide a Powertec Solutions International Model PS18L-32 for $99. The battery should provide approximately five hours of battery back-up. Do note that this battery back up only provides power to the ONT meaning you will need an analog phone in order to make phone calls and a power source for computing equipment.
