yeah but these cards dont have the same value now as they are now older generation spec.

Also we dont know if that contract was fully fulfilled.

The equipment in the cabs takes an optical feed from the Openreach equipment in the exchange. From that it produces a VDSL2 signal which it merges with the phone signal coming down the copper from the PCP.

And vice versa.

The Huawei and ECI equipment do exactly the same job. What is supplied to them, and they return to the exchange, is identical. What they send to the user and receive back was supposed to be identical. However we have found that the ECI kit in several respects cannot handle the Openreach product developments since their original selection and rollout. It cannot add those improvements to the customer's signal.

So yes, "really" smile.

I think in practice the 2 won't communicate with other.

Which two won't communicate?

Are you saying each type of cabinet needs it's own manufacturer's GEA headend equipment?

Bahhhh like others I waited years for FTTC/P and get the ECI cab. Around the corner there are Huawei cabs all fitted within about 8 months of each other.
Why?

Will there be G.fast pods for AIO cabinets or can an AIO have a mix of VDSL2 and G.fast cards internally?

Is that a yes? Or are you saying the headends are the same but if two types of cabinet are serviced by the exchange there needs to be a two identical headends, one for each type of cabinet?

I could believe that, but wonder how it comes about.

Does it get even more complicated on exchanges with both FTTC and FTTP, and worse still when postcode areas mix, and even worse when individual lines can get either?

On the face of it don't see why not. There is space inside for additional ties to the pod.
However, as most if not all of the AIO have been either BDUK or pravivately funded, it seems unlikely they will be upgraded to g.fast any time soon

The guy on Kitz has now moved to the Huawei cab, he's on exactly the same line and has seen almost 4 mb increase in upstream.
