Configuring Huawei MA5608T

For example, I will configure the Huawei MA5608T.

Connect to the device with a console cable at a speed of 9600. Standard login: root, password: admin.

Let’s go into configuration mode:


Let’s see the current configuration:

display current-configuration
display current-configuration | include TEXT

Change the password for the root user:

terminal user password

Let’s create another user, since one administrator can log in as root, and under the new user 4 at the same time:

terminal user name
  User Name(length<6,15>):ixnfocom
  User Password(length<6,15>):
  Confirm Password(length<6,15>):
  User profile name(<=15 chars)[root]:
  User's Level:3
     1. Common User  2. Operator  3. Administrator:3
  Permitted Reenter Number(0--4):4
  User's Appended Info(<=30 chars):
  Adding user successfully
  Repeat this operation? (y/n)[n]:n

Specify the IP addresses from which it is allowed to connect to the device:

sysman ip-access ssh
sysman ip-access ssh
sysman firewall ssh enable

sysman ip-access telnet
sysman ip-access telnet
sysman firewall telnet enable

sysman ip-access snmp
sysman ip-access snmp
sysman firewall snmp enable

Configure SNMP and SNMP Traps:

snmp-agent community write IXNFO
snmp-agent community read IXNFO
snmp-agent sys-info contact IXNFO
snmp-agent sys-info location IXNFO
snmp-agent sys-info version v2c 

snmp-agent target-host trap-hostname U2000SERVER address udp-port 162 trap-paramsname NMS
snmp-agent target-host trap-paramsname NMS v2C securityname NMS 
snmp-agent trap enable standard

Configure NTP:

timezone GMT+ 02:00                 
time dst start 04-01 00:00:00 end 10-28 00:00:00 adjust 01:00
ntp-service unicast-server source-interface vlanif208

Let’s see which boards are installed:

display board 0
display board 0/0
display board 0/2
display board 0/4
display version
display patch all
display io-packetfile information
display temperature 0/0
display temperature 0/2
display cpu 0/0
display cpu 0/2

I have displayed:

display board 0
  SlotID  BoardName  Status          SubType0 SubType1 Online/Offline
  0       H805GPBD   Normal
  2       H801MCUD   Active_normal   CPCA
  4       H801MPWC   Normal

If no boards are added, then add:

board confirm 0/0
board confirm 0/4

If necessary, you can restart the GPON board as follows:

board reset 0/0

If not needed, then delete the standard IP address from the meth port:

interface meth0
undo ip address

Create a VLAN for management and assign an IP address:

vlan 208 smart
port vlan 208 0/2 0
interface vlanif 208
ip address

Specify the default gateway so that the IP address of the device is accessible from other networks:

ip route-static

Create a VLAN for users:

vlan 944 smart
port vlan 944 0/2 0
display vlan 944

Next, I created a 1Gb/s speed profile and profiles for single-port ONT and client VLANs:

display dba-profile all
dba-profile add profile-id 15 profile-name "dba-profile_15" type3 assure 1024 
max 1000000

display ont-srvprofile gpon all
ont-srvprofile gpon profile-id 10 profile-name "vlan 944"
ont-port eth 1 
port vlan eth 1 translation 944 user-vlan 944

display ont-lineprofile gpon all
ont-lineprofile gpon profile-id 10 profile-name "vlan 944"
tcont 4 dba-profile-id 15
gem add 1 eth tcont 4
gem mapping 1 0 vlan 944

Turn on loop protection:

ring check enable
ring check resume-interval 30

Enable ONT auto find:

I’ll give an example of adding the first ONT on the first GPON port (more precisely, zero, since the numbering starts at 0):

display ont autofind all
interface gpon 0/0
display ont autofind 0
ont add 0 0 sn-auth "414C434CF2A40000" omci ont-lineprofile-id 10 ont-srvprofile-id 10 desc ""
ont port native-vlan 0 0 eth 1 vlan 944 priority 0
service-port 1 vlan 944 gpon 0/0/0 ont 0 gemport 1 multi-service user-vlan 944

Example of viewing information about ONT:

display ont info 0 0
display ont optical-info 0 0
display ont version 0 0
display statistics ont-eth 0 0 ont-port 1

You can view the client’s MAC address by its service-port:

display mac-address service-port 1

If you need to remove ONT, then you need to start by removing its service-port:

undo service-port 1
interface gpon 0/0
ont delete 0 0

Save the configuration:


To find out which SFP module is in the PON port, for example C+ or C++, you can use the command:

interface gpon  0/0
display port state 0

If there are two control cards, then you can check the synchronization status:

display data sync state

You can check for an ONT with an erroneous configuration by:

display ont failed-configuration 0/0/0 all

Example of viewing information about emu:

interface emu 0
display fan environment info
display fan system parameter

emu add 1 H801esc 0 0  "GERM4815T"
display emu
display emu baudrate
interface emu 1
display esc system parameter
display esc environment info
