Re: BT Home Hub 6 & G.INP On ECI Cabinets

Go to solution
I dont see it as impossible.

The business case is increased customer satisfaction, higher estimated speeds on checkers to increase sales and lower fault callouts due to the effect of g.inp on line stability.

The cost of replacing dslams is nothing like the cost of replacing e.g. copper with fibre, however that doesnt mean I am claiming its a trivial cost, BT seem to deploy their dslams pre installed in cabinets, I think the cost of replacing an entire cabinet is a different ball game to swapping out dslams in existing cabinets. The latter should be a much more manageable cost but I have never heard of BT doing that, only the former, and the former has been in uncommon cases.

Personally I dont think BT will do it at least not en masse for every cabinet, I expect the engineer may have been misunderstood or he misunderstood someone else e.g. the replacement could be a policy to replace broken ECI cabinets with huawei ones or for new cabinets in existing areas to be all huawei.

Looks like the ECI cabinet swap is in progress on the Stamford exchange. 

Roadworks sprung up at my PCP/FTTC cab today and this evening there is a brand new Huawei cabinet installed.

Which cabinet is that?

Has the original ECI cabinet been removed?

PCP3, PCP6, PCP8, PCP18, PCP27 and PCP35 are all ECI cabinets that are having additional Huawei cabinets installed next to them this month or next.

 

I have NEVER seen an ECI cabinet replaced with a Huawei cabinet, ever.

 

Even ECI cabinets written off in RTA's tend to be replaced like for like.

 

This type of post leads to misinformation.

Sorry to cause misinformation, not intended! 

It's PCP13 so is this just a capacity upgrade then?

The wording on roadworks.org stating...

 

" ...provide, renew or recover 1 DSLAM street cabinet and base."

 

is just a generic message I'm afraid.

Looks like Stamford PCP17 is also showing on roadworks as provide/renew/recover DSLAM, though this was originally planned for March 2018.

 

Sorry to burst your bubble.
