Its really quite mind blowing when you start thinking about just how many "dumb devices" aren't actually dumb at all and are running an entire Linux OS behind the scenes.

Although somehow those SFP ONTs are what really amaze me, fitting so much inside such a tiny little chassis, compared to the size of the relatively tiny Nokia ONTs.

On the other hand its kinda scary how powerful some of these devices are, if someone were to put nefarious firmware on them.
