Topic # 59383 4-Apr-2010 14:40
Send private message

Apologies if I am double posting about a topic already discussed, but it seems that a quick forum search didn't tell me what I wanted to now.

I'm waiting (like everyone else) to be cabenitzed. I decided to go take a look at the spreadsheet at the Chorus website. I could find all the upgrades around my area, but I don't actually know which one I'm connected to, and I have no idea how to find out.

The only reason why I need to know is because there are different dates set for a couple of the upgrades and have no idea which is mine.

Can anyone help me with this?

Knowing me I've over-looked the place where to find out.

Enter you're address in to the Telecom Wholesale maps tool, it will let you know which cabinet and or exchange you are connected to.

Try zooming out, the exchange area is in orange and the cabinet area or to be cabinetised areas's are pink, you need to check the dates to see when you're due to be cabinetised.

Apologizes, I mean purple, above the cabinet details on the right hand side will be the exchange details. That in theory should be you're exchange.

It means you are not on a cabinet but on teh exchange direct with no planned reason to put you on a cabinet, what does you modem currently report for line stats (ie attenuation, sync speed, S/N, noise margin etc)

It means you're on the exchange, rather than a cabinet, and there is no plan to cabinetise you're address, you should be however be in the 10 Mbps zone, try turning the 10 Mbps zone on and see if you're address is covered in blue.

I get this with my address as well, no cabinet listed, does this mean I am directly connected to the exchange? I asume this is better?

EDIT: OK post at the same time confirms direct connection the the exchange.

I don't think you're better or worse off to be honest, just exchanges seem to have been upgraded to ADSL2+ (and now VDSL2) ahead of most cabinets.

cyril7 will be better to explain further...

There is not a lot if difference, the gear in the exchange is identical to that in the cabinet, and each frame of line cards gets the same level of fibre aggregation uplink regardless of being in a cabinet or exchange.

AAroona, at 2.2km you are just on the limit for being cabinetised or not, however there are no hard and fast rules as it pretty much depends on the layout of feeder cables in each area. Regardless you meet the criterion of 10Mb/s or more so what you have is what youve got, which is not too shabby.

Cheers
Cyril

I should point out that there are subtle differences in the exchange and cabinet versions of an ISAM, but this essentially relates to the packaging of the line splitters, which is not really a real difference in the final outcome.
