UK: BT superspeed FTTP rollout
BT deploys Prysmian Group pole-mounted Distribution Points to roll out superfast ISP technology to customer premises.
Prysmian Group supports the BTOpenreach plan to provide all ISPs with equality of access for the last kilometre of BT’s local telecom network
.Prysmian Group, the sole BT partner, has designed and manufactured a polemounted overhead Distribution Point (DP) cabinet which is now available for high volume FTTP deployment. A distribution point (DP) can either be buried or situated outdoors as for the case of this pole-mounted version which can redirect fibre to customer premises for situations where buried cables are not an option to bring fibre to the premises.
This new cabinet is specifically designed for overhead final drop requirements, eliminating the need for a joint box at or near the pole. The pole-mounted fast access cabinet is designed for easy connection in two versions with up to 12 or 32 address points. The units are field tested, with the lockable green cabinet blending into the environment and protecting the splice trays inside.
