So in a location where at the moment there is no ducting, just poles carrying copper wires to a group of properties which are currently connected to an FTTC enabled cabinet.
If BTO are going to install FTTP, where would that large Aggregation Node go? On a pole or ? This is to supply about 60 properties.
The Aggregation Node will probably be down the road or could also be outside the actual exchange, but normally are in one of BT's chambers, the fibre cable then leave that chamber and can possibly then use over head cables from pole to pole connecting to Splitter Nodes.
The Splitter Node on the other hand are normally in the chamber near the are it supports, the DP's can be located in the chambers near the phone poles, or the DP's can be mounted on the actual phone poles.
TBH I have only seen Aggregation and Splitter Nodes and DP's all located in the chambers, so I cannot really say for sure.
*** update ***
Basically my understanding was that the fibre leaves the exchange and goes into the Aggregation Nodes that are daisy chained, each of those Aggregation Nodes supplies fibres to a few Splitter Nodes that are also daisy chained, and each of those Splitter Nodes supply fibres for the Fibre DP's which are also daisy chained each supplying up to 12 fibres for 12 homes.
