My place is scheduled for UFB in September this year so I'm trying to get my 1920s bungalow ready and tidy up my network at the same time. I'm looking at putting in a 9RU 10" wide mini cabinet (http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=CHSDNX1018&name=Dynamix-R10WM9D-9RU-Mini-Cabinet-for-10-Panels----) and relocating my switches, router etc from my home office into the cabinet to be placed in a cupboard towards the back of the house. My main question is do Chorus have requirements about where the ONT is to be placed, will Chorus force me to put the ONT near the front of the house? I've heard that because our power and telephone are currently aerial drops the fibre will be the same, the telephone currently comes in above the master bedroom and I'm not keen to have any equipment in there (the built in wardrobes are going to be ripped out at some point). Ideally I'd like to place it all in a large cupboard at the back of the house as it's where the manhole is and it'll be easy to drop cables down behind the walls, and most importantly it's out of the way.
I was also wondering where do they put the demark point when it's an aerial drop, is it up in the roof or could it go in the cupboard as well?
