Did you try to do the provisioning backend yourself first or did you go with APC/AMS from the beginning? APC/AMS might be a bit cost prohibitive for us, but we are pricing different options such as 'AMS-in-the-cloud', even if that sounds non desirable.

Yes, this is something I expect will happen. The system really seems to want to know the exact location of ONTs.

Interesting, what is your main driver for NG-PON2? We are going GPON and I feel that 2.5G/1.25G should be plenty for residential applications. But perhaps you use PON for business also?
