Dimensions of the new all-in-one FTTP box with ONT + BBU


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Could someone do me a favor to measure the ‘new’ FTTP all-in-one box?

Some of our neighbours are cramped for space apparently, so want to plan it properly! Also, you still need a CSP on the outside all for a 1 stage install!?? (See this blog: http://blog.cerberusnetworks.co.uk/technical-briefin...

Thanks

Where I've seen the connectorised installs the fibre goes straight into the building, no CSP or splicing, black outer is stripped off and a connector added before plugging into ONT

Yes, that's exactly how it works for mine. The cable came from the connector on the pole to my house and through into my utility cupboard. The cable was stripped back and wrapped inside the base of the ONT.

I have taken some photos including measurements for you - sorry lighting and angle is a bit dodgy. https://imgur.com/gallery/4pOti

If space is at that much of a premium, the ONT and BBU might be unclipped out of the housing and hung separately

(need to be close enough for the leads between the two)

Can see the guts in this one

@Jabes, you don’t have a ‘mastersocket’ do you? I have seen pictures with people having a mastersocket with a switch FVA/copper. So you can just opt out of that or what there no option to have it in the first place?

Very few doing the FVA anyway ... but yes, just tell the installer you don’t want it, or that you’ll plug a phone direct into the ONT if and when you decide to use it.
