FTTC Cabinet expansion

Currently connected to  an ECI which has never and is not showing waiters list but has just had a new Huawei cabinet installed as an expansion. How can I tell or find out when the Huawei is accepting orders so i can order a new line then cancel the old one .

Re: FTTC Cabinet expansion

You won’t need to cancel your old line as the VDSL Ties for the Huawei DSLAM will Route through the Copper PCP just like the ECI DSLAM.

You’ll know when it’s ready as the Wholesale Checker will go from saying there’s no available capacity to Accepting Orders.

So what makes you think a new line would be connected to the Huawei box?

They’ll connect your line to the first available Port in the Cab, be it part of the ECI or Huawei DSLAM.

You can’t specifically request which DSLAM your line is connected to.

That's what I thought, but now it's been expanded there is no way of knowing when the ECI cab is full. Don't know why it's been expanded off the ECI is not full and no new housing developments planned.

One of Openreaches Goals is to not allow DSLAMS to run out of Capacity so instead of now waiting for a DSLAM to be full to add a new one they’re putting new ones in before they get full so they can keep up with demand.

There’s quite a few cabs round my way that have had a second and in some cases a third DSLAM put in.
