NGA Maintenance/Upgrades Info?


[link to this post]
 
Hi

I saw BML Contractors doing some work under a tent in my NGA on PCP70 (SDCRWLY) today,

Anyone on here able to source information that would give me an idea of what was being done.

It looked like they where messing with fibres, so maybe a new line card, but BTw checker not showing anything regarding capacity required unless its future proofing maybe.

WBC @ 4500m> TP-Link TD-W8968v3
FTTC @ 450m > HG612 > Asus RT-AC87U
FTTN Coming Soon

Using a battery-driven kettle to make a cuppa on such a bad day?

Incidentally, some NGA, to get a tent containing people inside it smile.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

If they were messing with fibres it's likely they are installing additional capacity/redundancy at the DSLAM which includes adding a new card, yes.
