By default, the UFiber OLTs are managed through the dedicated management port. Administrators can choose to enable the Inband Management feature, which allows the management IP address to become reachable over a VLAN on the SFP+ uplink port.

NOTE: The default IP address that is associated with the (br0) management interface of the OLT is 192.168.1.1.
