Cab Sizes


[link to this post]
 
If you thought some of the cabinets that Openreach use are big, check out these..

I wonder what these have inside compared to the standard coax taps in their usual green (small height) cabs.

That is a main fibre node, the standard DOCSIS cab is to the right, so that large grey cab probably covers cabinets totalling 1500 to 2500 premises

Solution: Stick a camera on other side and active screen on other to make it 'invisible' might be cheaper than a relocation

Epic size.

Would like a nosey inside. Know of any internal pictures?

Not sure you have costed in all the court cases they'd lose as a constant stream of coffin dodgers bump into it wink






.... and how would their engineers ever find it to work on it ???

Only 'transparent' on the side facing the flat, obviously not the road side, though a vinyl wrap making that side look like a hedge with building behind might soften the impact visually smile

Apparently on continent to get around some of these issues cabinets are underground on a riser system, adds to the cost and clearly would need a pump to keep chamber from being a pond

The big one is an MSAN, supplies POTS services to about 500 premises. The smaller one is a power cabinet. Takes LV feed and sends it along coax to power amplifiers and optical nodes, along with having the batteries to keep the MSAN next to it running.

My sympathies are with the occupants of the house. I would have thought that the council should have told them about the planning application.

Job for a no win no fee solicitor?

It would be worth checking whether the height of the cabinet was correctly specified on the planning application.

You mean the non existent planning application that VM were not required to make.
