|The Reset button serves two functions for the UF-LOCO:
|SC/APC GPON port supports WAN connections of 2.488 Gbps downstream and 1.244 Gbps upstream.|
|The Micro-USB Power Adapter connects to this port to provide power.|
|RJ45 Ethernet LAN port supports a 10/100/1000 Mbps connection and passive 24V PoE to power the device.|

Check the fiber cables and connectors, and ensure that the OLT functions properly.
The UF-LOCO has not been authorized or cannot communicate with the OLT. Check passwords and OLT settings.
|WARNING: Never look directly into the ends of fiber or modules. The emitted light could cause damage to the eye.|
|WARNING: Until ready for use, keep modules and fiber patch cables covered using the included protective caps to ensure the connections stay clean.|
|WARNING: DO NOT connect the device directly to a UFiber GPON module (UF-GP-B+ or UF-GP-C+). Doing so will damage the device optics. Ensure that the device’s received signal level never exceeds -8 dBm. Use a UFiber PLC Splitter to add attenuation as needed.|
|Note: The airCube provides Wi-Fi connectivity with PoE passthrough, so it is the ideal complement to the UF-LOCO for CPE installations.|
|WARNING: The switch port must comply with the power specifications listed in this Quick Start Guide.|
- Ensure that your computer (or other host system) is connected to the device.
- Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host system with a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet.
- Launch your web browser. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
