The UFiber OLT configures the bridged mode and the wireless configuration options on the UFiber WiFi ONU.


Many different devices can be connected to an ONU to provide connectivity and features for users. See the Getting Started article for more details.

In the example setup above, the UF-WIFI will be used to provide both wired and wireless connectivity to several clients. The OLT will be used to configure the Bridged mode and provides the wireless SSID options to the ONU.
