Hi, 

 

Not sure where to put this so please move if necessary

 

We're currently getting UFB installed (services provided by UFF). I was just wondering if it was necessary if the ETP was installed just off the ground (say 500mm) or if it's okay if it's installed up high just under the eaves of the roof. We have an overhead install and currently the fiber is attaching from the pole to the front of our house and will follow the eave down to the side of the house where there is an entry point just under the eave on the side of the house. Ideally we would like the ETP to be installed at that point rather than down at ground level. Is this possible or is it a requirement for it to be at ground level?

 

Hope this makes sense

 

 

 

Cheers

I can't answer your question and expect you'll need to discuss this with your installer. But, I've seen plenty of installs where the ETP is up under the eaves, although I had understood that the install "requirements" were for it to be within a certain range near ground level.

We have a similar install, with an aerial line hitting the fascia and entering the roof space through the eves. I discussed the approach with our installer and in the end he installed the fibre as a single run with no ETP. No doubt that also doesn't align with the usual requirements.

All of my experience is in Chorus areas, and UFF may be stricter with their approach.

Cheers for that mate, if it's been done before it can be done again ;)

Mine was installed up under the eaves, I was going to request it but before I could the installer suggested it.

 

Edit: I should say this was a Downer Chorus install

You're probably better to call their service desk and just ask, their 0800 number is on their website.

 

I feel like it's at ground level for practicality of future access, but I'm fairly sure my friend's overhead install had their ETP rather high up.

Chorus network answer

 

If there is a requirement to transition from an external fibre type to and internal fibre type ( ie a splice is required) then the FTB (Fibre Termination Box) is mounted within 0.3 to 1.2 above accessible ground level

 

The high level Termination boxs are installed where a joint in the microducting may be required for the blown fibre install
