BT Home Hub 5 (Type A)

 • Support page

The Home Hub 5 is a simultaneous dual-band wireless-AC CPE with an

integrated VDSL2 modem, a GbE WAN port, and four GbE LAN ports.

"RTV7505W-D18 (ROHS) REV:4.10" is silkscreened on the board in the images.

OEM: Askey, HannStar seems to be the PCB manufacturer.

Plusnet started shipping an (internally) identical unit in a white case branded

as the "Plusnet Hub One" to fibre customers in November 2015.
BT Home Hub
  • BT Home Hub 5 (Type A) - CPU: Lantiq PSB 80910 (XWAY VRX268)
  • BT Home Hub 5 (Type B) - CPU: Broadcom BCM63268 @400MHz

Power consumption

Model		BT Home Hub 5A	BT Home Hub 5B
In operation		9.2W		14.0W
Idle			6.3W		7.2W
Standby mode		0.2W		0.1W



  • SoC: Lantiq XWAY VRX268 (PSB 80910 EL V1.2) MIPS 34Kc

Per the VRX268 product brief, the VRX268 SoC has an internal GbE switch

w/ two internal Ethernet PHYs (each functioning as either a single GbE PHY
or dual FE PHY) and support for three external PHYs via MII/RMII/RGMII.
This unit is using three external GbE PHYs (PEF7071V)
and the two internal GbE PHYs with the in-SoC switch.

The CPU/SoC and both wireless chips are all supported by OpenWrt.


The wireless radios used are the following...

  • Atheros AR9227 - 2T2R 2.4GHz, 802.11bgn (300Mbps)
w/ 2x Microchip SST12LP15A - High Power 2.4GHz Power Amplifiers
2x internal antnenae, inline Hirose switching coaxial RF test connectors
w/ 3x Skyworks SE5003L1 - High Power 5GHz Power Amplifiers
3x internal antnenae, inline Hirose switching coaxial RF test connectors.

The device has surprisingly long range at 5GHz thanks to the SE5003L1

high-power amplifiers/front-ends.
