Huawei GPON configuration

In this article, you can find helpful commands that can be used for the configuration of Huawei MA5800-X7 GPON from within Splynx. Huawei instead of the “show” use the “display” command. Also, there is enable mode, similar to Cisco devices. If we need to delete part of the configuration – use “undo some_command” instead of “no some_command”.

The basic information of the system display version give the understanding of the version of equipment and OS running on it.

It shows interfaces, for instance, MEth0. Now it’s showing GPON ports:display interface

The most important commands show running and startup configurations:

display saved-configuration
display saved-configuration

Get information about configured IPs and also the routing table:

display ip interfaces
display ip routing-table

1. How to set user and config default route


ip route-static
ssh user "test" authentication-type password

Before configuring GPON and VLANs we need to install physical cards to chassis slots and initiate them with commands similar to:

This command is adding a card on board 0, slot 5. And it’s defining that it’s a 16 port GPON card. In our case, we have one H901GPHF (GPON 16 port) and H901MPLA (SFP+ Ethernet) card: board add 0/5 H901GPHF

2. How to configure GPON

  1. SET VLANS. ID depends on the design, let’s assume that 100 is management, 200 Internet, 300 voice and 400 is IPTV.


    vlan 100 smart
    vlan 200 smart
    vlan 300 smart
    vlan 400 smart

  2. SET VLANs to the UPLINK PORT.

    Our UPLINK port is located in the board 0, slot 0, SFP port 0. It means “0/8 0”


    port vlan 100 0/8 0
    port vlan 200 0/8 0
    port vlan 300 0/8 0
    port vlan 400 0/8 0

  3. Defining DBA profiles. This defines upload speed (capability of the service on one ONT).

    Here it says that upload for MGNT is a maximum 1Mbps, for the Internet is from 10Mbps to 200Mbps, Voice is 4Mbps and TV is up to 5 Mbps.

    dba-profile add profile-id 100 profile-name "MGNT" type1 fix 1024
    dba-profile add profile-id 102 profile-name "INTERNET" type3 assure 10000 max 200000
    dba-profile add profile-id 103 profile-name "VOICE" type1 fix 4096
    dba-profile add profile-id 104 profile-name "CUSTOM_TV" type1 fix 5192

  4. Configure traffic tables and define real speed limitations.

    We define MGNT to 1 Mbps Up and down, Voice to 4 Mbps, TV to 10 Mbps, and the Internet to 100/20 Mbps.

    traffic table ip index 100 name "MGNT" cir 512 cbs 329680 pir 1024 pbs 329680 color-mode color-blind priority 7 priority-policy local-setting
    traffic table ip index 101 name "INTERNET_100_DOWN" cir 10000 cbs 329680 pir 100000 pbs 329680 priority 0 priority-policy local-Setting
    traffic table ip index 102 name "INTERNET_20_UP" cir 4096 cbs 329680 pir 20000 pbs 329680 priority 0 priority-policy local-Setting
    traffic table ip index 103 name "VOICE_SMART" cir 2048 cbs 329680 pir 4096 pbs 329680 color-mode color-blind priority 7 priority-policy local-setting
    traffic table ip index 104 name "CUSTOM_TV_COOL" cir 5192 cbs 329680 pir 10240 pbs 329680 color-mode color-blind priority 7 priority-policy local-setting



    ont-lineprofile gpon profile-id 20 profile-name "FTTH-100"

    Here we defined ont-lineprofile for FTTH-100 tariff bundle, that includes voice, IPTV, internet and management.

    Following configuration lines are put under ont-lineprofile config:

    tcont 1 dba-profile-id 100
    tcont 2 dba-profile-id 102
    tcont 3 dba-profile-id 103
    tcont 4 dba-profile-id 104

    gem add 1 eth tcont 1
    gem add 2 eth tcont 2
    gem add 3 eth tcont 3
    gem add 4 eth tcont 4

    gem mapping 1 1 vlan 100
    gem mapping 2 2 vlan 200
    gem mapping 3 3 vlan 300
    gem mapping 4 4 vlan 400


    ont-srvprofile gpon profile-id 20 profile-name "FTTH-100"
    ont-port pots adaptive eth adaptive


    Auto find can be enabled this way:

    interface gpon 0/5
    port 0 ont-auto-find enable


    interface gpon 0/5
    ont add 0 1 sn-auth "4857544352E92103" omci ont-lineprofile-id 20 ont-srvprofile-id 20 desc "CUSTOMER-1"

  8. The last is the most difficult command – it’s defining service ports for each VLAN for ONT.

    service-port 1001 vlan 100 gpon 0/5/0 ont 1 gemport 1 multi-service user-vlan 100 tag-transform translate inbound traffic-table index 10 outbound traffic-table index 10
    service-port 1002 vlan 200 gpon 0/5/0 ont 1 gemport 2 multi-service user-vlan 200 tag-transform translate inbound traffic-table index 102 outbound traffic-table index 101
    service-port 1003 vlan 300 gpon 0/5/0 ont 1 gemport 3 multi-service user-vlan 300 tag-transform translate inbound traffic-table index 103 outbound traffic-table index 103
    service-port 1004 vlan 400 gpon 0/5/0 ont 1 gemport 4 multi-service user-vlan 400 tag-transform translate inbound traffic-table index 104 outbound traffic-table index 104

3. Commands to check the displaying status

When everything is configured, there are a few helpful commands for displaying status.

  • Show all configured ONT devices:

display ont info 0 5 0 all
display ont info summary 0/5
display service-port all

  • Show auto-discovered ONTs:

display ont autofind all

  • Show physical module installed on Huawei OLT chassis:

display board 0

  • Show specific module installed:

display board 0/SlotID
display board 0/5

  • Show all configuration:

display display current-configuration

  • Show GPON dba profile:

display dba-profile all

  • Show traffic table that is used for speed limitations:

display traffic table ip from-index 0

  • Show service port:

display service-port all

  • Show ont lineprofile:

display ont-lineprofile gpon all

  • Show ont service profile:

display ont-srvprofile gpon all

4. How to remove ONT from configured Huawei ONL

The first step is to delete all associated service ports:

undo service-port 1001
undo service-port 2001
undo service-port 3001
undo service-port 4001

The second step is to delete ONT itself:

interface gpon 0/5
ont delete 0 0
