V numbers


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

Hampshrie Superfast are starting to list strange looking V numbers under their new live cabinets page. Now these appear to be locations where FTTP has been implemented. Does anyone know what these V numbers actually refer to? Are they some kind of Openreach adress for the DP, or Splitter? Or are they just something that Hampshire CC have made up?

Eg.

Locks Heath V5005
Locks Heath V5080
Titchfield V5072
Titchfield V5153

Its the number Openreach have given to that bit of Openreach network, does not correlate to anything any of us mere mortals understand.

So all it tells you is that some FTTP has appeared on Locks Heath in two locations. Figuring those out is the art form.

Hampshire CC have now put google map locations for live cabinets which is helpful.

I did wonder if the numbers had any meaning, ie location wise, but looking at new Milton, Lymington and Locks Heath, i saw no correlation so explanation makes sense.

what does "CuRe "mean?

ie "FTTC and CuRe to New PCP"

Looks like identity numbers for either the final CSP (Pole top or manhole final splitter ) or splitter location, (usually in a pavement chamber). I suspect the latter as this would align more with cabinet size and DP would still define the former.

There is clearly a structure to the numbers but without more / denser detail there is not enough detail to put this together.

V1 /V2 /V3
V31 / V32 / V33
V50xx / V51xx / V52xx

Mines a v31 when is done and its covering a largish area. I first thought that the v1,v2 was covering the nearest copper cab this isn't true. Checking the locks heath and Lymington ones confirmed that. I don't know if after a cabinet the d side wiring is grouped (hopefully i got my e side and d side cabling right in my head)

I live on a housing development of approximately 80 dwellings, which as far as I can tell are covered by 2 x V50xx numbers if that helps sizing anything? It's all underground fed with pavement chambers. Unfortunately I wasn't around when it actually got installed, so I don't know how much and what equipment is in the chambers.

Is your largish area, geographical or number of houses?

My first thought is V1 etc are splitters covering a dense area with a high number of houses.
V31 etc a medium number of Houses
and V50xx etc a small number of houses.

Someone like Ribble could no doubt tell us but may feel this is commercial info not to be commented on.
