Can I connect my fiber directly to my own firewall w SFP/transceiver?
It's probably been asked about before. I have an SMB firewall in home (a Zywall USG Flex 200) and would strongly prefer not to have to use the ATT router/wireless if at all possible. My firewall has an SFP+ and I can get whatever transceiver I need for the provider's connection. I'm plenty technical and willing to spend time on experimenting. Has anyone been successful at fully bypassing the provider's equipment?
I'm not asking if it is supported by AT&T, but
(a) is it a violation of our T&C to not use the provided equipment if I already have a better device that appears it could work, and
(b) is it technically possible to not need AT&T's modem with their fiber service? And if possible to omit their equipment, what do I need to know about the service or any issues discovered.
Thank you in advance.
