New capacity / 2nd cabinet dates - placeholders?


[link to this post]
 
Our unviable area appears to have filled up its' first Huawei 288.

The availability checker is claiming that there will be capacity again by 30th July. I suspect this is a placeholder date as I'm 90% sure that an entirely new cabinet is required to provide further capacity.

Confirm / deny re: placeholders anyone?

Thanks.

It most likely wasn't commissioned with a full complement of cards (probably enough for 96 lines maybe) so that will be the date by when extra card(s)/tie-ins will be installed.

It was commissioned with 48 ports, a single card, which sold out the day it went live. As did the second card installed the following week.

3rd and 4th lasted another 2 months, 5th and I guess 6th another 3.

Okay confirmed that that date is a placeholder, in a similar manner to other 'capacity' relief dates.

>60% take-up, 2nd FTTC build upcoming, extra hardware upgrades needed for node level vectoring to do it anything like right, area fully pre-ducted per guidelines with swept tees feeding properties, LLU-heavy so plenty of Wholesale upside, no VM cable, anyone would think FTTP might have been a good idea. wink

I might be wrong, but I think the swept-tee's are only any good if there is also a draw rope running through it.

The current Openreach requirements ask for both a draw rope for the copper and pre-installed blown-fibre tubing running from the joint box to each home.

Inspection cover molestation


[re: WWWombat] [link to this post]
 
For greenfield perhaps, not likely to be found in brownfield.

That said Openreach have been up to something around here, probably business as usual, a guy opened the 4 inspection covers around here and was up to something, be it just looking or working.
