Does BSNL or Asianet FTTH support Huawei HG8145v5 GPON ONT?

BSNL has outsourced their internet connection contracts to local cable providers and Asianet is currently handling BSNL's FTTH service.

They were trying to sell me Genexis FTTH wifi router and I think it would be better to get the router from another brand, which will be compatible with BSNL. Due to the pandemic situation most of the FTTH devices are sold out and I was able to find a vendor who is selling Huawei HG8145v5 router (GPON ONT). The vendor says that BSNL FTTH Huawei HG8145v5 works well with BSNL but since Asianet is handling their network, I am quite not sure whether I can use Huawei HG8145v5 router or not.

I am sure that the Asianet guy is withholding things from me as I am not interested in buying the device they supply. He is saying that he can't confirm whether Huawei HG8145v5 router will work or not until they check it. Earlier, I was told that I can buy any modem which has FTTH support, GPON and ONT (for VOIP). Now he is raising questions about Huawei router's compatibility on Asianet network.

Should I proceed with buying the Huawei device? Netlink, Syrotech ONTs are out of stock everywhere.

Please share the screenshot how you were sucessfully able to configure VOIP & use voice services. My vendor says your Huawei ont is not supporting Voice services.
