Just a quick question - helping some friends sort out their network in a brand new (Triboard) house. I've got an ER-X and UniFi UAP-AC-LR to go in.
Their sparky has installed the comms cabinet in the ceiling space, along with conduit up to that location from where the green fibre ducting is outside.
This seems rather odd to me. Would things not get too hot for the ONT up there? I was also going to put the ER-X in the comms cabinet, but knowing how warm they run anyway, I'd be rather hesitant to put this in the ceiling space, which is a bit annoying as it makes what would have been a really neat and tidy install rather tricky.
Does anyone know if this is common practice installing comms cabinets in ceiling spaces these days?
I could add a small DC powered fan into the cabinet, but even then I imagine it would get very warm over summer.
Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
