Re: Open FTTC box but no engineers around

But what box is the one the OP gave us a picture of? From the door hinging it doesn't look like a Huawei 288 or 128, nor an ECI 128. Or is it a side panel that is open?

its a small cab (either 128 or 96) and that picture is the SIDE of the cab, where the fibreoptic cable is terminated and you can also the see the 100 pair copper cable (thick grey/white cable) to the right. I don't think this goes in to the 3M box though but round the back into the main part of the cab.

In reply to a post by aramsay:
No problems; they've always been quite responsive, and grateful when I've had the need to contact them about an open cab in the past; just think of all the man-hours saved, if it was a PCP and some kids just sat there pulling all the cables out, just for fun!

First time I got a good response. But last year I was unable to report one. At every avenue they insisted on having a postal code and I had no idea what the PC was. Even pointing out that school children were walking past didn't help.

Makes you wonder whether the Engineer "forgot" to shut the door, knowing he was on call over the weekend!
