Gourock Cabinet 11 don't understand Openreach Lingo....
« on: August 07, 2015, 06:47:50 PM »

I posted the following in thinkbroadband's dsl forum after my big moaning match about no fibre at my cab woes (has now slipped to March 2016) and I gleaned the following from roadworks,org, but unfortunately I don't speak Openreach. Roadwork has completed.

Quote
A-ha !)we have Openreach action with a digger. Roadworks speaks thusly:

"Reference: BT020-S000000065730 (1948832)
Location: From O/S 6 Divert Rd, In F/W, Head S Accross C/W To F/W O/S Num 13. Gourock,
Address: Divert Road, Gourock
Promoter: Openreach
Telephone: 0800 3282873
Dates: 03/08/2015 - 05/08/2015 "

Is this finally it for cabinet 11 ?

Would this be it going live

My translation of the relevant line (beginning with "Location:") --

From a location in the footpath outside of No. 6 Divert Road, head south across the road to a location in the footpath outside of No 13 Divert Road.

The above is just a definition of the beginning and ending locations of some civil engineering works that are being carried out on behalf of Openreach.

F/W == foot way (a.k.a. footpath)
C/W == carriage way (a.k.a road)
O/S == outside
S == south

As for the reason for the excavation, I do not know. If you would take a few pictures of the relevant locations in Divert Road, Gourock, (including any of Beattie Bellman's cabinets) and then make them accessible for us to view we may be able to give you some idea of the purpose.

Will do later, as it seems to be the one day of summer in Scotland and I have to revisit my garden

I can relate to that 2Pods coldest & wettest july over here in Northern Ireland for 20 years and any dry day becomes a hive of activity for lawn mowers and hedge trimmers.

They original (functioning) cabinet 11 is at the opposite side of a 20' road.
They "new" one (at least I think it is) is beside a BT pole beside a house

Does the excavation essentially link those two cabinets?  :-\

Your first photograph is of a cabinet equipped with an ECI Hi-FOCuS M41 Mini-Shelf (just being used as a DSLAM) whilst your second photograph is of a primary cross-connection cabinet.

Yes they are now linked.
Sorry for the ignorance on my part on the actual cabinets.

That is, therefore, good news!  ;)

There's no need to apologise. If the system (eventually) works well for you then the internal gubbins of a street cabinet is not really relevant.  :)

When would it be likely to be reported as live after  this ?

Talking about cabinet internals: I have an old post here with some really old and mysterious (to me) boxes where my line comes in to my master socket  ;D

I really do not know.  :no:  Maybe in four weeks time or maybe in fifty two weeks time.

 :hmm:  Hmm . . . Perhaps they should be examined and identified. Mysterious boxes, through which a VDSL2 circuit will eventually pass, could be the source of future problems.  :-\

Should be this, though I thought everyone had seen them ?

I'm currently operating straight from the test socket, having disconnected all the extension and bell wire stuff.
Unfortunately the house boxes etc. are still here, not knowing any Openreach engineers.  :no:
