For once I'm going to ask a question which has stumped me for quite a while.
Quite a few people know that FTTC cabinet backhauls are connected to large WBC exchanges which house handover nodes.
So does that mean even the smaller WBC enabled exchanges have handover nodes installed?
E.g. My village has a ~1400 line exchange which has been WBC enabled for over 2 years and has just had FTTC installed - Are the FTTC cabinets in the area likely to be connected to that exchange? It's the only one for about 5 miles that has WBC. The one 5 miles away is around the same size, however in the town 8 miles away is a ~19,000 line exchange.
