How Long


[link to this post]
 
Had a reply from Openreach in which they are saying "Once the cabinet build is complete, it will then be a further two to three weeks before the cabinet is visible to take orders, during this time Openreach hand the cabinet over to all other communications providers." is this correct? It seems to be a long period of time if so why does it take that long.

Yes the processes take some time to all filter through

For mine, they said after they had wired it all in, they had software to load, testing to take place etc.

Commissioning and testing.

Once live customers are in place, the aim is for as-close-to-zero downtime as possible. So they need to make sure it is up, running, stable, and worthy of being part of the national, critical, infrastructure. That it correctly monitors itself and reports any alarms. That nothing is broken or semi-broken. That, where backup routes are installed, they work.

It is always easier to turn off, or do major fixes, before it has been turned live.

You wouldn't believe how much testing stuff goes through before it makes it onto BT's network!

Do you think that BT deliberately delays a go live date just to annot people. Just because te cabinet is live does not mean it is fully connected, tested, all data bases updated and aligned, routing information built and stored &c &c.

The sooner BT can sell capacity in the cabinet, the sooner they get some money back. The sooner they have some more money, the sooner they can pay for another cabinet install ... the sooner the next is installed and ready the sooner BT gets revenue from it, and so on until the country is fully covered.

I'm surprised you think two to three weeks is a long time, sounds really quick to me; if you'd said two to three months I might agree.

Certainly if the "cabinet build" didn't include connection of power and fibre.

The cab has been there since early August last year. Power was supplied the same week.
The fibre spine was laid to it before last xmas and the copper between old and new some 2 months ago. Still not live although I believe it has been switched on.
