Converting from FTTC to FTTH (P)


[link to this post]
 
I have FTTC fortunately, the fibre passes past the property boundary to the next cabinet that is about 50 yards down the road.

Can / will any FTTP conversion tap into the fibre that passes the house and if so how is it done such that downstream users do not suffer an outage during the connection period.

or is a series of fibres blown down the tube for use in FTTP installations.

Just curious!

FTTP comes off fibre aggregation points, not mid-run, so I would envisage additional fibres added to the existing duct / tube to provide FTTP.

And that's why they'd charge ~ half a grand, plus costs!

Boo.
Technicolour!

So no chance of this as part of a nationwide rollout this century!

FTTP as the standard phone/broadband from BT - time frame of 20 to 30 years.

A lot will depend on how popular the on-demand solution is, if popular enough it will encourage shareholders that there is money to be made from a full fibre roll-out

The existing cables going to the cabinet are high fibre count, they will use one of the unused fibres.

The first installation on that aggregation node, basically an underground fibre tray, will be more complex as an unused fibre is connected to an optical splitter then onwards to the property to be served. An OLT port is provisioned at the exchange and the fibre connected to that port.

Subsequent FTTPoD installations on that node will be simpler as they will just be connected to the existing splitter provisioned for the first customer.

No extra fibre needed though, Openreach planned ahead when they blew the fibre to cabinets.

Well extra fibre needed between the aggregation point and the home of course smile

Brain was going faster than fingers there. Obviously there will need to be a new fibre for the drop between splitter and home!

I fail, thank you for pointing it out smile

It'll also, obviously, make that roll-out substantially cheaper as private funding has already paid for some of the construction costs!

FTTPoD is a massive business case changer and a really, really clever product for Openreach.
