FTTx Components in Videos


[link to this post]
 
The FTTPod PR has generated a bit of talk about the components making up FTTP.

I found some videos from Openreach (or for Openreach) that include a bit more information, and some video shots, and even a few bits with blokes working on them.

Be warned though, that the videos can be a bit dull in places...

A hyped showreel that shoots through a few bits
Openreach training tour of FTTP, but with a few shots of the hardware.
Openreach training intro to FTTC, the first 2.5 minutes are duplicated.

The FTTC video shows a 3rd type of FTTC cabinet (around 3 mins) which is considerable smaller. Something targeted for the top of telegraph poles?

They go well with some of the photos of FTTP kit in MK from andrew.

the external FTTC "cab" could go on a wall, in a basement (FTTB ?) or maybe in a chamber underground. Looked too big/heavy for a pole top.

Why is it necessary for an engineer to wear a hard hat when working at an open street cabinet(FTTC video 7:04)? Or is it something that only applies to blondes? wink

probably when doing public videos is wise to be paranoid about health and safety image smile

64 lines - more than I expected to be honest. And can be remotely powered - but that uses 12 lines.
