Ahoy Peeps,

I am taking a new connection from Jio Fiber. In my apartment, cat6 cables were laid into homes from network room in the ground floor. Since Jio is built on GPON network and it needs Gpon-ONT device at home as in fiber to home theoretically.

Currently my option is to place ONT/ONU device in the network room and plug RJ45 to the ONT and use internet at my home and connect twisted pair to ONT and use phone too. This is insecure as ONT is left open in the network room and anyone can connect to the device and use internet.

Is it possible to patch the fiber with SFP-to-RJ45 module in the network room and use RJ45-to-SFP module to bring it back to fiber mode and have the ONT device at home?

ya thats the only way for residential peps. simply connect the earthing to the electric socket's earthing wire(hole). Also make sure that, that socket earthing is really made to ground plate which is buried in proper place and have proper conductivity down there cause lot of time people ignore to put black salt(to increase conductivity and maintain it for longer time) when they lay copper plate. also check that the copper plate isn't dry down there, if its dry then it won't conduct properly.

For commercial purpose they have heavy bandwidth so they use special earthing only for the data cables but for home you can simply earth with normal socket.

But you still think if it's worth for spending that much money for shielded cable instead of making new conduit and using normal CAT6.
I realised after spending money on more expensive shielded cable, that I could have simply used new conduit away from electric cable and saved lot of money since I had more room for new conduit. But now I regret 😅

@devangpatel In my house there are no seperate conduit pipes for cctv cameras and fiber cables. I have to attach a dome camera along with LAN cable on ceiling (which is RCC Slab). But I want to install PVC conduit pipe (1 inch dia pipe & 10 feet long) inside the concrete slab. So is it possible to cut the concrete slab for installing conduit pipe now or it only possible during construction of home?

you can use clamps/clips for PVC pipe to attach to slab as you can see from my previous photos that we have used clamps/clips to attach PVC conduit with the wall.

To attach clamps you simply need to drill holes into the slab for the nails to hold the clamps.

@AG1001 Ceiling might be bit difficult, however you can easily cut through regular walls with a cutting tool. I got it done recently. Unless you want it in the center of the ceiling, maybe getting the cable through the wall might be easier.

Also, you could look at wireless IP cameras so you'd only need to worry about power.

@varkey The camera position is such that the pipe cannot pass from one side to other side through wall because area is open and pipe can only pass through RCC ceiling which is the shortest possible way.
Length of pipe on ceiling would be around 10 feet. For atleast 5 Ethernet cables, 1 inch pipe would be use. So, 1.5 inch deep and 10feet long drain like path need to cut through RRC ceiling for underground pvc pipe. Do you think it is possible ?

Yes, I meant pulling the cable through the existing concealed conduits which is relatively easy. You can even use the existing CAT6 to pull the fiber through the same conduit, in case it cannot hold one more cable.

No, since this is xPON, you'd not be able to use a media converter etc.

Similar thing was done in our apartment.

S.K

I think drilling hole (to pass PVC) through RCC is not good idea. But you can consult some civil engineer so that you make sure that drilling does not harm the strength of the wall. But as @varkey suggested going with wireless cameras is better option if you can't drill this big.
