Cabinet query


[link to this post]
 
A friend of mine is connected to the EMGRETO exchange, cabinet P2. The December spreadsheet said his cabinet is not targeted for fibre and the BT Wholesale checker doesn't mention fibre for his line. Is there a newer spreadsheet that someone could check please?

There is an April spreadsheet that has not been leaked, but the BT Wholesale checker for his number will be reflecting what is in it.

Thanks for that, it doesn't look good then. The existing cabinet looks very small so probably not worthy of upgrade frown

This is one case where size really doesn't matter. It's how it's used that is important.

Look at the first one on this page. That's ours.

That looks quite large in comparison! This is his:

It looks a bit of a fibre-like cab but it's definitely not, the picture is a Google street view picture from March 2009 long before they started enabling the exchange.

I'm not so surethat is a BT cabinet, we have a few dotted around like that and they don't match up with PCP's.

Also the wholesale checker does not always tell you if you are destined for fibre, most of our cabinets don't give any info yet, and thats with the FTTC twins having been installed for months.

It could be this one, but no numbers on it, but it only serves 7 postcodes

Postcode Percent Lines
NN189BQ 20%
NN180QW 53%
NN189BH 60%
NN189BP 100%
NN189BW 100%
NN189BB 100%

Yep, that is a normal BT cab, just a smaller version, usually to cover a new build estate or small amount of lines.

So what about these three:

http://goo.gl/maps/ykr1
http://goo.gl/maps/ZuhE
http://goo.gl/maps/NLDR

Looking at them just now I think they are actually CCTV cabinets, the first and third you can actually follow the cables to the cameras, also whilst I'm missing a few cabinets from my map with very few lines connected the ones above are not in the correct area's.

Now if you look at the one the OP posted, there is a CCTV camera right next to it.

RobertoS is that a CCTV camera next to your picture?

Those 3 are all BT cabinets as like the OP. The first has an old manhole at the front of it, probably PO. The second you can see has a standard BT 3 manhole setup in front of it and the last one also has an old PO manhole at the front of it.

If the cameras do go back to the cab, its just for a feed to the outside world it requires. The cabinet will not be for the sole purpose of the camera smile

If the small cabs do not have their own PCP number, then they will simply be secondary connection points (SCP's) rather than primary connection points (PCP's) but the lines from the SCP still go back to the PCP. Think of a SCP just as a junction box.

I'm not conceding that its odd the cabs are close to the CCTV's however, that's probably a coincidence smile

4, 14, 23, 33, 34, 35, 50, 51, 55 in Ramsgate are currently live and RFS.

Thanks
