Hi  :)


Talking to my Son and Mum...

They tell me that the green boxes look just like the picture that UncleUB has posted.

As a guide to where the cabs are positioned.... See Mock-Up Pic Below!   :blush:

How many lines ( is that the word?) will one cabinet serve?

Some FTTCs could take up to about 600 lines but it is unlikely that they would all be provisioned at the time of installation.
A smaller number of racks, printed circuit cards and connector blocks would probably be installed at the beginning.
I don't think that BT publish their capacities. However it's quite unlikely that every BT line in the existing green cabinets has an ADSL service upon it.

EDIT The following is a picture of a MSAN showing active Printed Circuit Boards and spare slots.

it would be an excellent idea to record all FTTCs and PCPs in a Kitz or possibly SamKnows database so that we are no longer constrained by "regulatory compliance".

EDIT - I understand some data is already being entered in the Samknows web site but at present I have only found a general statement that BT's FTTC are enabled at a particular exchange.
I gather that not all PCPs within an exchange area would be provided.
Also I have not yet found other FTTC suppliers mentioned.

Kind regards,
Walter

I think that would be a great idea and we could include a GPS location for each box, I bet it would be handy in the future for many people.

@BB,

Are you going to volunteer to be coordinator ? !!!!!!

We all need to be aware of the emerging new data on the SamKnows site.
It is accurate but, as with so many other things requiring significant effort and full Communications Provider co-operation, it is only partially complete.
The following picture is shown when you drill down after I had entered the Lyddington pub's phone number and postcode in Samknows.

Most who read here will know that Lyddington is famous as being the first FTTC provided by Rutland Telecom.

Kind regards,
Walter

"Old White Hart"! I'm sure they are on line for ATTB: that's something even more important to the residents. ;)

Hi  :)


Got The Photo's!

Including one of the Pole that my mum and son forgot to mention until this morning  ::)

But...

Now I'm even more confused about what I've found   ???

1] Green Box ...  Quite Small
2] Green Box ... Large & Wide ( Vodafone - Label On  Bottom Right Side )
3] Pole ... Enormous & Fake Wood ( Got doors in it! )
4] Green Box ... Large & Tall ( O2 - Label On Bottom Right Side ) Note... Making one hell of a loud " Hum! " noise.

Hi Zoe,

I'm very sorry to disappoint you, but all of those are cellular (mobile) base stations. The pretend pole is actually a mast with the antenna concealed therein.

What you're looking for is usually a single larger cabinet besdie or within 100 m of the BT Green cabinet.

In this area Virgin Media also have multiple cabinets where they are distributing co-axial cables from the Fibre node.

Kind regards,
Walter

Me Again!  :-[


Just Had To Say...

My mum and son have been out for the last few hours.
And...
I've been sitting here thinking.. " How did they Not Notice that Pole? " | " How could they have Forgot to mention that Pole? "
Mind You...
It's small enough to be easily missed.. Isn't It?  :no: :lol:
Anyway...
They have just come in and I've asked them... " How did you Not Notice that Pole until today? " | " How could you have Forgot to mention that Pole until today? "
The Answer... " It Wasn't There Before Today! "

The POLE must have been put up sometime between 3.30pm yesterday afternoon and 9am this morning  :-\

Zoe


PS.
When I think about it...
The pole did look brand new. ( Immaculately Clean )
No Bird Poop! .. No Graffiti .. No Doggy Do! .. Nothing!
So! - Can just about believe that it's only just got there over night.
