At the beginning of June a new ďall in one type cabinetĒ appeared in our village. Itís about 1.5 miles from the next nearest cabinet (which is the one we are served from). Last week guys with big reels of what looked like fibre did some work along the road that leads from Sandbach past the existing cabinet and into our village. Hopefully the fibre going in.
Today when Iíve come home Iíve noticed that 4 silver locks have appeared ( just little round key type ones). They form a large rectangle on the front of the cabinet. Is this a type of the silver lock people talk about going on cabinets when they are commissioned? There is also a little yellow sticker with a electrical symbol on it appeared. Does this mean the power & fibre are all there and the cabinet is ready to go?
I think from what Iíve read we need Ďlive to live migrationí to happen. So our lines are routed from the old cabinet to the new.
I know the new cabinet must be for our village to transfer over too as there are only about 100 houses and we are all currently attached to cabinet 7. There is no new buildings/ development in the area so the only point of it is infill I would assume.
How does live to live migration happen, any clue on timescales? Does it interrupt services?
Any help would be gratefully received
