Typically GPON is deployed with a standard copper Ethernet presentation. So there is nothing Meraki need to do.
How is it being deployed in your country that prevents it working with Meraki?
This is only my opinion, but I doubt that's ever going to happen. I don't see how it would make sense for Meraki to get into that business.
GPON fiber solutions is typically just a layer 2 transport so though the gear may not be Meraki, I don't see why you couldn't have a Meraki switch connected to a GPON ONT through your fiber cabling to a GPON OLT where it uplinks to a Meraki core/MX Appliance. Network topology view would still show non-Meraki components as long as it supports CDP/LLDP. Maybe I am wrong, my wife says I am all the time.
We have a similar setup. However, we cannot pass VLAN information from the Meraki MX to the Meraki switch. DHCP Dies through the Calix GPON ONT to the Access Point Clients. DHCP is fine however from the AP's isolated NAT10.0.0.0/8
I have been searching for a solution to this for a very long time.
If the access point is connected directly to the ONT Bridged DHCP is fine. However, if it goes through a Switch I get no DHCP from the local network.
i was planning to use it for a small FTTH project with 200 users.
I know there are others vendors, but i just think it would be nice to have meraki end to end.
And also have a enabled API network gear...
