  • How is FTTP installed?

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the actual method to which FTTP is installed? As I understand it you have your fibre which runs from the exchange to a node (how many properties can be fed from a node?) also (not to get confused with FTTC as it doesn't touch a cabinet).

    You then have fibre from the node to the property - I think Im correct in saying the cable from the node (usually black with a yellow stripe) has 10 cores - is a single core taken from the node to the property or do they take the whole 10 core and then just feed 1 to the property?

    If anyone could point me in the right direction for info on this or even enlighten me that would be fandabby dozy.

    Thanks!

    Found this if anyone's interested - seems to explain it fully http://www.ispreview.co.uk/talk/show...llation-Videos

    I know they "blow" the fibre using HP air down existing conduits, presumably the one for the copper wires (OK, Aluminium if - hello Gordon - you live in Hastings )
    From business Fibre installs, they run multiple cores and only connect the ones they need - makes future repairs easier unless someone takes out the whole bundle

      Thanks, I was trying to find out exactly how they split the "core" fibre to the different properties. I think they run from the aggregation node to secondary nodes and each secondary node serves something like 10 properties - "I think"...
