Re: Possible Fibre options for my village? FTTdp/G.Fast?


[re: Michael_Chare] [link to this post]
 
Where I live, when Gigaclear lay a fibre cable across a field, or round the edge they just dig a trench a couple of feet deep and lay the cable in it. This can be done quite quickly with a digger. They only use ducts under roads.

Really ? How very slipshod of them, if time has taught Openreach anything, it's that inducted UG runs are a recipe for disaster.

I believe there is 15 premises in my village that would need connected, so we would just need to buy a single fibre from the fibre cabinet which is 5km away and bring that to the center of the village to a splitter node and then each person would need to pay for a fibre cable to there premises? Is that how it would work?

Cool, thanks for the reply. Shouldn't the cable be ducted the whole way? alot of people have started using mole plough for deploying the ducting.The way leavers shouldn't take too long as my farm owns like 2km of the 5km distance to the fibre cabinet smileand my dad knows the other land owners.

You never install a single strand as fibre is delicate and can break, so fibre cables come in various sizes of multiple fibres

The final drop from the distribution point to the home is covered by the £99 install fee each person who orders pays. The final drop is usually fairly short so a lot depends on the actual arrangement on the ground

I am telling you what I have seen Gigaclear do. Digging a trench in a field is not that difficult or expensive. If ducts are used, the cable has to be pulled through the ducts. You could ask B4RN what they have done.

As a different point, you need to work out exactly how the back haul would work and cost.

Gigaclear use Genexis equipment both in the home and the cabinet.. You could ask B4RN what they do.

How many properties could you possibly connect, and how many would sign up?

Mike

If you only have 15 premises to connect you are correct FTTP would be better than a FTTC Cabinet. A Cab would usually serve a minimum of 96 customers so would 'waste' a lot of capacity, whereas the Final FTTP splitter would serve up to 32 customers and doesn't need powering so s cheaper option IF FTTP has already been provided in the head end exchange. Which village is it and someone will be able to say whether there is FTTP in the area. ( Otherwise the cost of the FTTP head-end would add quite a bit to the cost but could be used for other clusters of customers in the same area).

The fibre you would run to the village would be a fibre cable with multiple fibres in it. These are standard sizes and the smallest may be 8 fibres. The unused ones would be available for other clusters en-route or as spares if something happened to the working one ( usually a pair are used).

I see. My exchange is aspatria in cumbria. How much would FTTP head end cost roughly. Also why does it need to be FTTP enables, most of my village would just be buying the infinity 2 package that bt offers.

It doesn't. Woukd just need to build the FTTP network from an aggregation node ( not the Fibre cab), which incidentally does not need to serve the same FTTC cab as your pcp is connected to, or even be in the same exchange area, which could change the financials considerably especially if your near the edge of your exchange area.

Ahh right i see (kinda i am new to all this so i'm just getting use to all this new terminology). How do i find out where the aggregation node is?
