EchoLife HG8245Q2 GPON Terminal Quick Start
To use the device properly and safely, read the safety precautions carefully before using the device and strictly observe these precautions when using the device.
– Store devices and accessories in temperature –10°C to +35°C and relative humidity 30%–85% RH for at most 9 months. If the ambient temperature or relative humidity is overhigh or overlow, the device may be faulty.
– The ONT is used for only FTTH.
– Do not look directly into the optical port without eye protection.
– Keep the device out of the reach of children as the components or accessories may be swallowed.
– Install the device in strict compliance with the requirements of the supplier. Reserve a space of at least 10 cm above and around the device for heat dissipation. During the installation, keep the device away from electric appliances that generate strong magnetic or electric fields, such as microwave ovens, refrigerators, and mobile phones.
– The power supply voltage of the device must meet the requirements on the input voltage of the device.
– Do not use any power adapters that are not in the standard configuration.
Otherwise, the device may be abnormal or unsafe.
– Dry your hands before connecting or disconnecting cables. Stop the device and switch off the power before connecting or disconnecting cables.
– Do not place any object on the device, so that the device will not be damaged due to overheating or deformation.
– Prevent objects, such as metal, from entering the device through the heat
– Switch off the power and disconnect all cables, including the power cable, optical fiber, and network cable, during periods of lightning activities. The socket-outlet shall be installed near the power adapter and shall be easily accessible. Before use the power adapter, please check no damage on the adapter.
– Do not lead the strength member of the optical fiber or other metal parts indoors. Do not install telephone lines, network cables, power adapters or power adapter cables outdoors. Adopting these measures will help prevent device damage and bodily injuries which are especially prone during thunderstorms.
– If an abnormality occurs, for example, liquid entering the device, smoke, unusual sound, and smell, stop the device immediately, switch off the power, disconnect all cables (such as the power cable, optical cable, and network cable) to the device, and contact the authorized service center.
– Do not disassemble the device without permission. In the case of a device fault, contact the authorized service center.
– Dispose of the packing materials, expired batteries, and old or abandoned
devices in accordance to local laws and regulations (recycling them is strongly recommended).
– Do not change the structure, safety design, or performance design of the device without prior authorization.
– If the power adapter is damaged and its internal circuit is exposed due to manmade factors, do not touch the exposed circuit, which may bring safety risks.

Installing the GPON Terminal
Caution: Do not install GPON terminals outdoors or on the outdoor cabinets.
2. GPON terminals can be placed on a workbench. Do not install GPON terminals in other modes, such as the ceiling.
3.The terminal cannot be connected to other devices such as GPON terminals, switch and router.
Mounting a GPON terminal on the desk
The figure below shows a GPON terminal that is horizontally placed on a desk.
1 Optical port
2 Ethernet port
3 POTS port
4 USB port
6 Power switch
7 WLAN switch
8 WPS switch
Step 1: Use an optical fiber to connect the optical port on the ONT and the optical port on the wall.
1. The type of the optical connector connected to the optical port in the wall is determined by practical conditions.
2. To ensure normal use of fibers, make sure that the fiber bend radius is larger than 30 mm.
Step 2: Use a network cable to connect the LAN port to a PC or the Ethernet port on the IP STB.
Step 3: Use a phone line to connect the TEL port to a phone or fax machine.
Step 4: Use a power adapter to connect the POWER port to the power socket.
The preceding figure connects the power adapter as an example. When connecting the backup battery unit , please see the usage guide to the backup battery for details .
Step 5: Use a USB data cable to connect the USB port to the USB storage device.
Step 6: Press the ON/OFF power switch.
Step 7: Press the WLAN switch to enable the Wi-Fi access function. By default, this function is enabled.
Step 8: Press the WPS switch to enable the WPS encryption function.
Before enabling the WPS encryption function of a GPON terminal, ensure that the function is set in the system software in advance. After successful setting, press the WPS switch for the settings to take effect.
Logging in to the Web Configuration Window
Step 1: Set the IP address of the PC in the same subnet as the management IP address of the GPON terminal.
You can find the default management IP address on the nameplate of the device.
Step 2: Enter the management IP address of the GPON terminal in the
address bar of Internet Explorer and press Enter.
The login window is displayed.
Step 3: In the login window, select your preferred language, enter the user
name and password (printed on the nameplate of the device.),and
click Login. After the password is authenticated, the Web configuration window is displayed.
-If you do not perform any operations after logging in to the system for five minutes, you will exit the system and the system automatically returns to the login interface.
-The system will be locked if you input incorrect user name and password three consecutive times. One minute later, it will be unlocked.
-Change the initial password after logging in to the web page.
Configuring Wi-Fi Parameters
Step 1: Choose the WLAN tab and choose 2.4G Basic Network Settings. (If you want to configure 5G Wi-Fi, choose 5G Basic Network Settings.)
Step 2: In the pane, select the Enable WLAN option box. In the dialog box that is displayed, set the basic Wi-Fi parameters, including the SSID, authentication mode, and encryption mode.
-SSID: See the nameplate on the device
-WPA PreSharedKey: See the nameplate on the device
SSID indicates the name of a wireless network searched by the Wi-Fi terminal; WPA PreSharedKey indicates the authentication password for the Wi-Fi terminal to access a wireless network.
Step 3: Click Apply.
ONTs support Wi-Fi. The wireless network coverage of an ONT is affected by walls (number, thickness, position, and material), ceilings, and other objects that wireless signals need to traverse. Besides, the material type and background radio frequency (RF) noise also affect the coverage of a wireless network. You can maximize the coverage of a wireless network using the following methods:
1. Decrease the number of walls and ceilings between the ONT and other network devices.
Each wall or ceiling reduces the coverage diameter of a wireless network by 1 to 30 meters. Place the ONT at a proper place where wireless signals need to traverse a minimum number of walls and ceilings.
2. Observe the straight line rule when installing network devices.
The distance for which signals have to traverse at a 45° corner of two 0.5 meter-thick walls reaches approximately 1 meter. Therefore, place devices at places where signals can directly traverse walls or ceilings.
3. Note the impact of building materials on the wireless network coverage.
A metal door or aluminum wall may limit the coverage of a wireless network. Install access points, wireless routers, and computers, so signals can traverse walls or open passageways. Materials and objects such as fiberglass products, metal products, insulation walls, filing cabinets, bricks, and concrete weaken wireless signals.
4. When connecting an ONT to a wireless network, keep it far from
the following devices:
– Electronic devices or components that produce RF noises. (Keep a distance of more than 2 meters between such a device and the ONT.)
– 2.4 GHz wireless mobile phones and X-10 devices (such as microwave ovens, home security systems, blue-tooth devices, and refrigerators) greatly weaken or even eliminate wireless signals. Even when a 2.4 GHz wireless mobile phone is not connected to a wireless network, the phone base still sends signals that interfere the wireless network.
5. Recommended installation height: ≥ 1 m (distance between the
ONT and floor).
6. Distance between the ONT and nearby walls: ≥ 30 cm (reserving
enough space around the ONT when the ONT is horizontally placed).
