An issue with mixing Bitstream 2 and Bitstream 3/3a on the same ONT was that 
STP was blocked for BS2 but had to be tunnelled for EPL (e.g. BS3) products. 
Some ONTs couldn’t discard on a port/OVC basis.

With the revised TCF standard STP is now discarded for all Bitstream 2x & 3x 
products so there will be the ability to mix more services on the same ONT.

Bitstream 4 still passes it.

UFF have a practice of mixing product families on the same ONT.

Don’t forget bitstream 2/3 or 4 cannot be mixed on the same ONT, bitstream 4 
requires an ONU.

UFB is designed so that individual services from competing RSP's can be enabled 
on individual ONT ports.
So the answer is absolutely yes.

Hi guys.  A shared server room has an active UFB service for another business 
on the floor.  We want UFB service to our office too.

Is an additional ONT install needed (as I'm being told by <ISP>)? Or, can 
Chorus just enable another port on the existing ONT and have and then run a 
network cable out to both routers from one ONT? Is the ONT capable of multiple 
PPPOE sessions to the offsite hardware?
Or is this just creating a problem that doesn't need to exist (- ie say yes to 
the second ONT install)?

Many thanks,
Paul Adshead.
