Introduction & Diagram
The UFiber platform fully supports VLANs, which allows for providing "Triple Play" services to your customers using GPON. This guide will show you the steps to implement VLANs using UFiber products. The topology will consist of a router such as an EdgeRouter Infinity with VLANs configured, UFiber OLT, and UFiber Nano G along with the accessories and proper setup discussed in other articles. This is done using ONU Profiles which can be created in the OLT GUI or using UNMS. It is also possible to use these steps to create different Profiles for different Internet service packages to limit bandwidth to service plans.
First, In this example we will use an EdgeRouter to configure Internet, IPTV, and Voice VLANs.
set interfaces ethernet eth8 vif 100 address 10.10.10.1/24
set interfaces ethernet eth8 vif 100 description Internet
set interfaces ethernet eth8 vif 200 address 10.10.20.1/24
set interfaces ethernet eth8 vif 200 description IPTV
set interfaces ethernet eth8 vif 300 address 10.10.30.1/24
set interfaces ethernet eth8 vif 300 description Voice
|Note: It is beyond the scope of this article, but it is common to have a DHCP server for these VLANs and firewall rules to block traffic between the VLANs.|
UFiber OLT Settings
There are two locations where VLANs need to be added on the UFiber OLT. The first will be in the LAN interface, and then for each ONU Profile.
1. SFP+ LAN Ports
2. ONU Profiles
Create multiple profiles to include or exclude VLANs as needed.

Testing & Verification
For a simple test, you may connect a computer with multiple VLAN interfaces configured and tagged for VLANs 200 and 300. Using the example above you will see that the connected device receives an IP in the Native VLAN and is tagged for VLANs 200 and 300.
Also, if connecting a managed switch to the LAN port on the Nano G, the device itself will receive an address in the native VLAN and when trunking the Uplink port of the switch for these VLANs, you can then untag ports for the IPTV and Voice VLANs to segregate those services if needed.
