Big FTTC Cabinet vs Smaller FTTC Cabinet deployment?


[link to this post]
 
Recently I have seen FTTC cabinets popping up in my town Bridgwater (WWBWAT), and I couldn't help but notice that all of the cabinets I have seen so far are the smaller 128 line cabinets - I have not seen even one.

In some places of the town, they have 2 old cabinets within 100 Meters of each other, and they have deployed two smaller FTTC cabinets to serve each one, instead of one big one to serve both.

My question is: Why have BT only deployed the smaller cabinets? Have they acknowledged that the larger cabinets are too big for the pavement?

Space on the pathway is not usualy a issue as the FTTC cabs can be located up to 100 meters away from the exisiting pcp.
While the smaller FTTC cab has been deployed it is what OR is expecting to be in take up, if demand exceeds this then either they will replace or install a larger cabinet. (Ive seen an exisitng pcp, a small fttc and a larger fttc all together)

As for two existing PCP's sharing a single large cabinet, it could possibly happen but is unlikely due to the above reason of demand increasing.

Are you local to west berkshire? As it could be quite a journey i can link the google street view but it only shows the existing old pcp.

Can take a photo of the 3 cabinets tomorrow during the day.

The mistake you are making is assuming the smaller cabinets are only 128 port. wink

On what basis do you say the assumption is wrong? If it is right, then the poster has not made a mistake.
