Saddleworth FTTx Spotting


[link to this post]
 
I thought I may as well chip in on the off-chance that someone in Saddleworth (MRSAD) is looking for information on FTTC. This was originally planned for 30th June 2011 but as like many exchanges the date now stands at 30th Sep 2011. It's looking good as around 11 of the 17 cabs due to be upgraded are now in situ (although not powered up).

Good work, Jim.

I notice the smaller FTTC cabs they're using are a totally different design to the smaller ones OR are using in Exeter.

Haven't seen any of those hulking great 288-line cabs in Exeter yet.

Hmm yeah. I wonder what the difference is between the two small cab designs then. I wonder if one is smaller than the other, and possible only takes 98 pairs, or less/more. Anyone else aware of the difference between the two small cabs?

Hmm, the small cabs like in http://s414.photobucket.com/albums/pp222/izools/Exet... look narrower than the deployed ones in Saddleworth eg http://www.fibreforsaddleworth.co.uk/twitter/PCP14_3...

There's a huge one like in the first and second pics in this link at the bottom of East Wonford Hill at the Rifford Road junction in Exeter now...

Ah really?

I used to live near there.

It seems to me that lines on a cab that already have a "pretty good" D-Side (i.e. 15+ Mbit) are getting FTTP and the outer reaches are getting FTTC.

Best get my geek cam on over the weekend tongue

Thanks for the info - I was looking for just that.
However, don't hold your breath - less than 2 weeks before 30th September go-live and they've just changed the date again to 31st December for the Saddleworth Exchange

They haven't been moved back, all cabinets in the UK that wer not live by September BT simply changed the date to the end of the next quarter, ie. December. It doesn't mean it's been delayed until then, and most cabs should be done before then as most are installed.
