Fibre IRS


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Does anyone know if Fibre IRS is technically implementable on brownfield FTTP or is there a reason for it being only greenfield. Also I know it was done for Ebbs but does the Ebbs FTTP design differ from that used in the rest of the country?

Regards,


Gareth

In theory could be implemented in other areas where FTTP is deployed, but the unique nature of ebbsfleet means it is the only way to get TV services, i.e. devoloper went for that option, to avoid the aerial/dish clutter I believe.

It is a retransmission of the sat/freeview signal down the fibre, rather than an IPTV delivery.

The area already has BT owned CATV.

I don't think BT retail have got with the programme! They've not realised that if they pump freeview down it they can have a crack at 25,000 potential vision customers.

Just saying.....

Sigh...

Do they? Ebbsfleet was / is a greenfield development with no infrastructure present
