Re: G.INP affecting certain eci modems,resulting in a drop in sync rate and other issues

My understanding is they disable the upstream transmission of G.INP and enable fastpath again.
I noticed changes on the 10th May. And this has been consistent on both my HH5A and ECI modem. I still want to try out the .11 update for the HH5A. I'm curious to see how it performs by itself with the update. 😄

How to Fix the ECI modem with G.INP!

 

Step 1: Place modem on a solid base.           http://prntscr.com/7eid9w

 

Step 2: Hammer 8 nails in the top.            http://prntscr.com/7eidx3

@GeekOfBroadband

That is just too funny.

@BT When people feel moved to this sort of (v.funny) posting then you know your reputation is taking a pasting on the issue.

Re: G.INP affecting certain eci modems,resulting in a drop in sync rate and other issues

Is ECI modem affected with HH5 Type B? I am on ECI cab, actually getting max speed my line supports but high ping though. Is it worth to give ECI modem a go?

Re: G.INP affecting certain eci modems,resulting in a drop in sync rate and other issues

The HH5 Version B has a G.inp compatible chipset (broadcom) so would work fine, in fact they did work fine as did the Huawie HG 612 modems with the latest firmware if you were on a huawei FTTC cab until they rolled out the  so called "fix"

Which was in fact no more than a botch up, they simply disabled G.inp on the upstream so the upstream is now fast path with FEC

 they did this so those who where supplied with an incompatible  device by BT ie HH5 version A and the ECI modem would see an improvement to latency, but due to the increased FEC (foward error correction) overheads on the upstream many are not seeing their previous upstream sync rates re appear again, So a fail by BT

 

What they should of done is recall all the incompatible devices that they supplied  and replaced them with compatible ones

 

As for those on ECI FTTC cabs G.inp has so far not been rolled out on those , as those too are incompatible with G.inp

 

This is an issue due to incompetance why wasn't this picked up during testing of the HH5 vA and ECI modems? The so called experts surely would have know they wouldnt work properly with G.inp  and my bet would be they wouldn't be vector compatible either

Re: G.INP affecting certain eci modems,resulting in a drop in sync rate and other issues

I thought the update was only been uploaded to lines which are affected not the whole network in which case it shouldn't affect people who were using HH5B and HG612 modems. Is this not the case as that would be a right **bleep** up on Openreach's part.
