Cab wiring question


[link to this post]
 
I saw some guys working on my fibre cab most of yesterday. There have apparently been a couple of blocked ducts in town when they've tried to do other cabs.

I was wondering if the fact that they had both cabs (PCP and Fibre) open and were wiring in both means that they have already got the fibre from the exchange to the fibre cab or can they link the 2 cabs without having first pulled fibre from exchange?

The copper tie pairs can be installed at anytime once the physical cabinet and linking duct are in place. There is no need for the fibre connection to the exchange or power.

That's what I thought - I was hoping that it meant that the fibre was there meaning that blocked ducts weren't an issue. The guys did say that it won't be long until it is switched on so fingers crossed!!

It can be switched on even before fibre arrives too.

I think by switched on the guy meant ready for service as I'd asked him how long until people would be able to order fibre from that cab - at least I hope that's what he meant wink

Is there a power switch in the fibre cab? I saw my local cabinet installed a couple of weeks ago and the last step was the power being tee'd into another power supply (next to the BT phonebox) and the hole filled in. I saw the large Tee connector and then it was filled and surfaced over.

I don't think the fibre has arrived yet so no real reason for the power to be enabled in the cabinet.

Makes sense.

Well the RFS date for SMWLS exchange is 31/12/2014, let's hope it happens on schedule. 5 fibre cabinets are now installed, nothing else showing on roadworks.org so it's essentially done locally except for connecting the fibre feeds.

Hi Ribble

Are you able to tell if there is fibre to cab3 on Tenby (SWTB) exchange yet? There's been guys working there all week up until yesterday (Thurs) and nothing today. Perhaps I'm getting my hopes up but maybe I'll be able to order soon wink
