E side and D side pairs in same cable.
« on: October 07, 2019, 08:02:58 PM »

A question for BS really. Is it possible for an aerial cable to contain both E side and D side pairs?  Something like the attached crude drawing.

Hi Licq

Hmmm ?? I don't have a definitive answer, as some of these remote places may well have something fashioned along these lines ?? But, I have never, ever heard of such an animal ??

I think it would be a logistical nightmare with E-side cables being pressurised and all that ??  :shrug2:

Thanks BS, I was just wondering if it sometimes happened in rural areas. But yes, cable pressurisation would be a bit of a nightmare.

Are aerial E-side cables pressurised? I have, perhaps naively, always assumed that such cables are grease filled.  :-\

Tiny, rural, exchanges that are just remote concentrators with a few hundred lines, some EO and some via PCPs.

In particular, I am thinking of EASTW . . .

If that's Weavers Exchange .... I'm pretty sure I painstakingly mapped his entire D-side route back to a PCP ?? Albeit literally around the corner from the Exch.

Was a few years ago, now.

No, the Weaving Shed is served by NSBFD (North Scotland, Broadford), whilst I am thinking of EASTW (East Anglia, Stetchworth).

 Just had a quick perusal and Stetchworth appears to be served by PCP's ... with associated DSLAM's.
