Aggregation Nodes and Splitter Nodes


[link to this post]
 
I've been looking at the Access Infrastructure for FTTC and FTTP that Andrew shows in his photos (and on trefor.net) and trying to understand things better. The Splitter Node only appears on the FTTP architecture and looks similar to the DPs - is that correct? Where do these splitter nodes sit in the network (the picture implies they live in chambers). They replace the PCP/DSLAM cabs in the pictures, but presume that's not where they will be located. How many are required for a particular area? And a similar question for the Aggregation Node (common to all FTTx). It is also shown in a chamber, but how many are there?

You begin(?) to sound like someone doing a dissertation or thesis smile. If so, no doubt you will be citing all the sources from which you have culled the information tongue.

Not at all smile Just someone looking forward to getting FTTP, and as an engineer I like to delve into the nitty gritty of these things!

And as you seem to be asking for refs I was referring to these:
