Chorus guy currently at a UFB only brand newish building right now to setup a customers UFB, they have been waiting for months to get phone/internet
since they moved in, no copper available in this building for dsl/vdsl. all other tenants have UFB already he was last to move in

the chorus guy to install the ONT doesn't know what this is in the photo, or how he connects to it for his ONT

Click to see full size

can anyone provide details on what they should be doing / how they are suppose to connect to it

unfortunately all the other neighbours in the building are out so we cant see how all the other UFB installs were done in regards to it


thanks

The photo is very contrasted so is difficult to see, esp on my phone but it looks a bit like a fibre terminal and he should have a male? connector

Try a photo with flash

^^

The laser warnings are a dead giveaway (exit point). 2 Pair enter through the top hole (black cable, well more than 2, but only 2 capped). Wound around the clearance spindle, terminated with what appear to be M-M connectors behind the warning symbols

Look to be fold down flaps or lift out with nail sort of thing. Shut the lid, fold one of the warning flaps down (look spring loaded). Insert equally green/yellow Male-Male fibre connection to ONT on correct active strand at cabinet/exchange end

I should hope so :P

It should be the standard single core green connector, with 45 degree angle core to marry up correctly. Similar to http://p.globalsources.com/IMAGES/PDT/B0065803010/Fiber-Optic-Connectors.jpg

I'm not surprised the he didn't know what to do with it - as its a non-Chorus Fibre terminal  (I have no idea why or who fitted it but) Looks like the feed delivery is a 12core fibre from what ever is the distribution point/terminal and that two fibres have been fitted off with 2 single LCA pigtails then into 2 blockhead addaptors behind those warning labels. All an installer needs is a 3m LCA to LCA patch cord to plug between it and the ONT

BTW what part of the world? City/Town (good) - general area within (better) or even apartment block if that is ok (best)

the building is at 28 balfour rd, parnell, auckland, level 4 apartments. hes bascially last one to move in, all the others already have UFB.

unfortunately in the end they left without getting it working, red light on the optical on the ONT.

If it's anything like my apartment block there will be a comms room somewhere where the fibre comes in originally and is the split out to the individual apartments.

This needs to be done in the comms room by Chorus before the fibre is active in the apartment.
Is there a building manger or the body corp at least should know more.

Is it a point to point fibre link? Maybe city link or vector.
