Benington PCP2


[link to this post]
 
Hi
My EO line has now had a PCP sprout up right next to the exchange.

Somewhat interestingly instead of going for an all in one cab which seems common - standard PCP has popped up and a small huawei cab next to it.

Any idea why this might be?

On a side note - Is it possible to estimate VDSL2 speeds based on ADSL1 attenuation? I'm guessing its a bit of a shot in the dark?

I've attached some photo's.

Thanks

A rough guess should be possible, as the line length is almost the same. We also need the approximate distance between the PCP and the fibre cabinet.

Your combination is the more common one, and which is chosen depends on the number of lines being served.

A two box solution also means g.fast is a potential future option, not sure about g.fast pods and the all in one units

As you can see there's been a change with the PCP 7/7 shells they seem to have a slot on each side for where the new side pods for g.fast are going to be sited. The old ones don't have this so I'm guessing it makes it easier and quicker to retrofit onto the shell.

I'm on an EO line and they have installed the two cabinets here as well, look exactly the same as the ones in the original pics, but they are only a metre or so apart.

Work seems to have gone at breakneck speed as the cabinets seemed to be installed, had the cables pulled into them then work on the street light next to them all within 2 weeks, and we went straight from "in scope" to "connect" on the When and Where page. Never seem so many Openreach vans kicking around the exchange as have recently.

Guess we will see a flurry of these EO cabinets as some of the BDUK projects are coming near the end dates.

And budgets have to be spent by the end of BT's financial year at the end of the month, or be reduced for next year wink.

More likely the case of penalty clauses kicking in if projects don't deliver

They do seem to be moving alone pretty quick. All this happened in about the space of a week!

I'm currently still showing as 'in scope' on the checker but codelook and Connected counties say October 2017 for a go live date. Looks like they will be ahead somewhat.

ability for a Gfast Pod is not the same as having the commercial case for a Gfast Pod
