That reminds me, I still have a few to add.

Ducts? Aren't they underground?

There was a post a bit ago showing FTTP via a pole to the premises.... Anyone remember where that post is?

Any more photos inside in the fttc cabinets?


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Great collection of cabinet photos, RobertoS!

Are you collecting mug-shots of the layout and the gubbins inside the two Huawei cabinet models, and the ECI?

This site has a shot inside the FTTC cabinet that Rutland Telecom is using [1]. Do you know who manufactures that cabinet? And what make of DSLAM is Rutland using? The Huawei SmartAX, the same as BT?

Trefor.Net has two shots inside the smaller Huawei cabinet [2], but they are too small to zoom in clarity.

It would be useful to see a close up of the kit in the FTTC rack units. In the larger Huawei cabinet, the kit appears to be mounted vertically.

Is anyone on this forum installing the cabinet equipment?

cheers!

I have a few more people have sent me, but the problem that is putting me off is the formatting of the pics to a uniform style, as I don't have sophisticated software for the purpose. As you can see from the higgledy-piggledy layout already. The "Photo gallery" addon to the website is a bit sensitive.

I suppose the insides would be interesting, but the main purpose is to help people identify what they are looking at, when they are wondering if they have found their PCP and FTTC cabs.

I don't think trefor has it quite right even now. The second pic of his certainly doesn't look like a Huawei FTTC one, but the third definitely is - with the DSLAM on the left. Ours has two banks of connectors for the copper where that only seems to have one. Not all were wired up to the copper to the PCP though.

The second picture on trefor just looks like a copper PCP, not an FTTC one.

Cheers for the clarification guys, even if I'm really confused now!

adsl24.. It's specifically photos inside the cabinets that I'm trying to track down.. I'm trying to identify the DSLAM kit that Openreach is using.

Huawei has launched a new range of VDSL2 line cards that offers a higher density of ports (64 VDSL2 ports) per card. If the cabinet DSLAMs can accommodate either 4 or 8 of the current 48 port cards, and these provide either 144 or 288 VDSL2 subscriber lines per cabinet, then presumably when the newer linecards are installed, this capacity will increase to 384 lines for the larger cabinet.

RobertoS.. A popular tool for normalising images to a standard size and quality for web sites is the excitingly-named 'convert' tool from the ImageMagick suite. It's open source, and available for Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.. [1]

The tool can do all sorts of conversions.. transcoding to and from different image formats, changes in dimensions and compression rate, and has numerous filters for weird-and-wonderful purposes.

Some of the photos you've collected on your site are very high quality (8Mb+).. But the browser in this clapped-out laptop grinds to a halt trying to render a webpage full of them. Convert can reduce the scale and quality ..

When re-scaling with convert, if you supply a new 'x' dimension (e.g. 800 pixels) but omit the 'y' dimension then convert will scale proportionately along the Y axis. This ensures that all the images fit nicely on the same web page.

Text

$ convert -scale 800 -quality 40  original.jpg resized.jpg


Convert can batch process images, too!

Well that's the sales pitch for ImageMagick over with!

Cheers,a

I believe you're on Windows, so IrfanView could be what you're after. Completely free.

I use it to batch resize JPG's, or batch convert between formats. Nice and quick.

IIRC they are old cable cabs. Certainly not BT.

288 = 6 * 48 port card with 6 * GigE fibres.
