Re: fibre speed between exchange and cabinet

Does anyone know what speed (up and down) the speed of the fibre link between the exchange and the FTTC is?

Re: fibre speed between exchange and cabinet

Should be about a max 80Mb DL and 20Mb UL I think.

 

If you're doing a speed test make sure to do it via the LAN cable not wirelessly.

Re: fibre speed between exchange and cabinet

the speeds curiousfollow quotes is cabinet to modem.

I seem to remember reading that exchange to cabinet link would cope with about 80 full speed connections, so around 80x80Mbps=6,400 Mbps.

I can't find my source for that though and my memory isn't marvellous: someone will almost certainly come in and correct me ....

Blimey! Only 80 full speed connections, that doesnt seem a lot before degradation starts.

How many connections does a cabinet normally have before being classed as full or needing an upgrade?

Re: fibre speed between exchange and cabinet

The amount of connections available in the cabinet depends on the type and there is enough bandwidth for a theortical maximum of 80/20 on each line back to the exchange.

Re: fibre speed between exchange and cabinet

I'm asking about the fibre speed from the exchange to the Fibre Cabinet not the bit between the Cabinet and the property!

- I would have though that the speed would be around several hundred Mbps enough to serve a fully connected Fibre Cabinet.

Re: fibre speed between exchange and cabinet

The cabs are uncontested at the moment iirc. Each card in the cab has its own fibre back to the exchange, again iirc.
