Anybody recognise this enclosure...
« on: March 26, 2018, 08:06:23 PM »

... Appeared recently outside my local exchange, not far from the AIO on the footpath.

That is a perfectly standard cabinet equipped with a Huawei SmartAX MA5616 DSLAM.

Ah, thanks. Time will tell who it is connecting, with what.
I was intrigued by it actually being inside the exchange grounds.

Yup, b*cat is correct.   Its a standard Huawei 96/128 FTTC cab.   They put a couple of them outside one of my neighbouring exchanges last year to enable FTTC for what were previously EO lines.  It should have a twin PCP somewhere nearby.

Our posts crossed.   This is one of those at a neighbouring exchange, which is is the BT car park and you can see its twin PCP on the pavement. 
BlackSheep will probably recognise the exchange.

Last time I walked past and cut down the alley, it looked like they were putting another one in right up against the back of the exchange, was in a hurry at the time so didn't pay that much attention other than wonder where its twin was.
