Can you always hear a fibre cabinet?


[link to this post]
 
Can you always hear the FTTC cabinets? My cabinet (40 in Barnstaple) was recently completed (power/cab etc) but I can't hear any sound from it. Can it be switched on remotely or does it need to be commissioned? I guess it needs to be commissioned but don't want to keep trying to hear it if you can't hear them in cold weather.

With the Huawei 288 you usually need to get your ear right down near the vents. The hum is pretty quiet.

I don't know about the others.

Might have more chance hearing it in July when the fans are on.

I'm sure there's a joke here about distance from cabinet and attenuation smile
