Still Full


[re: Ignitionnet] [link to this post]
 
4 line cards in and the cabinet has been waiting for a 5th since early February. Dates offered for the new install went 5th March, 12th March, 26th March and now 16th April.

Given the enormous scrap that was had to get the thing built out in the first place I can't say this makes me happy.

This previously unviable cabinet will have spent over half its life since initial go-live unavailable due to lack of capacity.

Not as good as the one when it goes beyond 50% - IE when this 5th card goes in and the people waiting actually get to order on it.

Shame we didn't get FTTP. Would've given a way better uptake than Openreach have seen on average so far, and ducting is all less than 5 years old.

No you forget you are the ideal candidate to tell us what cross talk speed reductions are like and whether it gets down to no-one getting anywhere close to the theory of up to 76 Mbps

Already done that part - people continue to receive full sync even with 191 connections on the cabinet. My own max rate started off at 98Mb and is now 73Mb.

Let's just say I am stubbornly refusing to reboot the Huawei modem.

I remember that feeling.

Then, when I bit the bullet I was extremely surprised to still see an 80Mbps sync, and the max attainable jumping back up to over 83.

That was with the old firmware though. The attainable doesn't drop in the same with with the new firmware.

Hmmm. I guess it depends on the distances, and how much the cables stay in one bundle (a linear network) vs being spread into many small bundles (a circular network).

Ignition - do you know what the longest line on the cabinet is?

Yes Mr Wombat, I have the wiring diagram for the site.

Ah yes the bitswap tax.
